Quote - Minister Theresa Oswald

I've come across many people in my life who aim to do the right things for the right reasons, but few have been so inspiring to me as the Honourable Minister Theresa Oswald. She has heart, she has vigour, she has compassion and she works hard. I admire her sense of family and community and her vision for a better tomorrow. Here is her quote for an 8 year old kid:

"There is no such thing as a dumb question. If you want to know something, dig down to find the courage to be the only one in the group that asks. Be polite, enthusiastic and interested and almost EVERYBODY will appreciate it and take the time to answer. Do this, and you'll be closer and closer to being as smart as you can be...but here's the trick: you'll never actually get to that destination. The journey just continues, as long as you have curiosity and wonder." - Minister Theresa Oswald

Lovely quote - I find when I am brave enough to ask what might seem a silly or obvious question, it was often on everyone's mind and it might even spark the best conversation of the day! Thank you Theresa!


  1. Yes, a very insightful quote, is that. And so true - the journey continues. And as we get older the asking of those questions becomes easier as we realize how much we don't know. :-) Thank you, to your guest - the Honourable Minister Theresa Oswald, and to you Brandy, for asking her :-)

  2. I, too, admire Theresa and love her insights.
    Brandy - you , too, are an inspiration. Love your work and creativitiy.
