Questions I have only recently asked myself for the first time:

What does "In God we trust" mean? And what does it have to do with our money?

Why do we say "I'll be a monkey's uncle" when we are very surprised? Does that mean our brother or sister had sex with a monkey?

What does "e pluribus unum" for all or all for one...or neither?

Who are "the wretched refuse" the Statue of Liberty beckons?

Which President would rather have been right?

Should you really "act as if there is no tomorrow" when at age 30 you've been proven wrong 10,950 consecutive times?

If happiness is derived from the attainment of values, and life is the greatest and ultimate value, why aren't we all happy?

Weren't we better off when we knew less and spent more time wondering?
