A friend once asked Isidor I. Rabi, a Nobel prize winner in science, how he became a scientist. Rabi replied that every day after school his mother would talk to him about his school day.
But, she wasn't so much interested in what he had learned that day. Instead, she always inquired, "Did you ask a good question today?"
"Asking good questions," Rabi said, "made me become a scientist." Source Unknown
What if we become known for the good questions we ask, instead of the opinions we offer?
