A Philosophical Gift

I just got this gift from a friend as a belated Christmas present:

If there’s one thing I learnt from my study of philosophy, it is this: the questions matter more than the very answers themselves. Why? Because the question kicks off the entire process of inquiry. It is the process of figuring out the answers that we learn a great deal about the subject matter in question, and about ourselves.
