Excerpt from: Born With a Question Mark in Your Heart, Chapter 1
"It is fortunate that man is born with a question mark, otherwise he would be just another species of animal. Buffaloes have no questions; they accept whatever is, unquestioningly – they are really faithful, religious. Trees have no questions, birds have no questions; it is only man and man’s prerogative, his privilege. In the whole existence he alone is capable of asking a question.
"The old religions have been trying to destroy your privilege. They have been forcing you down to the level of the animals. That’s what they call faith, “undoubting faith”. They want you to be buffaloes, donkeys; but not men – because the only special quality that defines man as separate from animalhood is the question mark. Yes, it is a turmoil.
"Certainly to live without any question mark is peaceful, but that peace is a dead peace; it has no life in it. That silence is the silence of a cemetery, of the graveyard. I would prefer man to be in a turmoil, but alive. I would not like him to become a graveyard. That peace, that silence is at a great cost: you are losing your life, you are losing your intelligence, you are losing your all possibility of discovering an ecstatic way of life. That question mark is not there without significance. It is not the work of the Devil that each child is born with doubt and not with faith. Doubt is natural.
"Each child asks a thousand and one questions. The more a child asks questions, the more potential he shows that he will be able to discover something. There are dumb children too – not literally dumb, but psychologically dumb. Parents like them very much because they don’t create any trouble, they don’t ask questions – even a small child can destroy all your knowledgeability." Osho
