Two consecutive thoughts

"First, the question of why there is something rather than nothing is neither silly nor just of interest to philosophers and "armchair speculators". Second, like all good philosophy, by the end of the journey the prize is not necessarily getting an answer, but rather consists in gaining a much richer and more nuanced understanding of the question."
I found this in some of my notes having found it - I don't know where - some time ago. Although I cannot attribute it to its proper source, I offer it nonetheless considering it too good to waste.
