>One of the things I’m asked most often about The Questioning Way is whether or not it’s a book of poetry. The answer is no, it has a poem at the beginning of every chapter but most of the book is prose. The poetry used in the book is what I usually show people when they ask about The Questioning Way, because it’s the quickest, and most satisfying way I can think of to briefly tell someone about the views expressed in the book. In a society that has become accustomed to getting information in sound bites on television, and as short bursts of text on venues such as twitter, poetry is becoming one of the most poignant and effective ways express a point of view in a very brief manner. Some people think of cutesy rhymes when someone mentions poetry, but I believe well written poetry is all about conveying ideas about every facet of modern life in a way that not only expresses points of view but the emotions propelling those points of view as well.
>Power can corrupt you. As you grow in life, always be on the watch to stay true to your ideals.
>In nature creative energy can be destructive or constructive and there will always be a an equal balance of both in the universe. Order and chaos always balance themselves.
>It’s good to strive for success in life. But too much striving can be a bad thing. We all need to take the time to slow down and just enjoy life from time to time.
>Love means letting go when you need to. Love released into the world will return to you many times over again and again
>Love means letting your children pretend to be whomever they want to pretend to be. It means kicking them in the ass when they need a kick. It means kissing them when they need a kiss. It means fixing whatever is broken when they can’t fix it themselves. It means letting them go out into the world to seek their fortune when they grow up. Don’t worry, they’ll call all the time and come by to visit when they can
>In my experience, love can be stronger than amnesia, hate, greed, death and faith. Is there anything stronger than love? I really don’t know nor do I care to find out.
