“There’s a very clear sense for a lot of people that answers we used to find helpful aren’t as helpful anymore. So we go back to ask the same questions—and maybe we get some of the same answers, or maybe we’re at a point where the answers aren’t as important as the nurturing and guarding of the questions themselves.”
