Round up: Recent questioners and quotes

QuestionRoundupIn the book A More Beautiful Question and on this site, we’ve published a lot of beautiful questions that led to breakthroughs in thinking or new products. Many of these are classic stories designed to inspire all of us about the power of questioning in our own lives.

Since publication of AMBQ I’ve tried to keep my eyes open for newer stories or profiles of people who have embraced questioning and curiosity in their lives and work.

If I find a short quote, we’ve added it to our Beautiful Quotes Gallery, which now numbers more than 75 quote graphics. If it’s a longer quote, we try to capture the context a bit more and/or offer a link to lead people to the fuller story.

Here’s a round-up of a few of the questioners and quotes we spotted from the past six months, in case you missed my original posts on the firehose that is Twitter.
