"Once you start asking questions, innocence is gone."
~ Mary Astor ~
Sometimes we ask a question and pretend to be innocent about it, but we actually have an agenda. We want our question to lead somewhere, to develop into something in particular, to get the person we're asking to realize something, or behave a certain way.
Let's be honest about this and not fool ourselves into thinking that we're less manipulative than we are.
I ask questions free from motive or agenda, and simply because I want to know.
