The answer is never the answer.
What's really interesting is the mystery.
If you seek the mystery instead of the answer,
you'll always be seeking.
I've never seen anybody really find the answer -
they think they have, so they stop thinking.
But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery,
plant a garden in which strange plants grow and
mysteries bloom.
The need for mystery is greater
than the need for an answer.

"The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer." Hmm...
that's not been my experience. Unanswered questions leaves me feeling unsettled. I am much happier at peace. Where there's a mystery, there's truth yet to be known, and so off I go to find it.

But you're right, rarely do we feel truly satisfied by someone else's *answer*. In my own life though, I have found many answers which bring me great peace... answers about my self, my parents, and other relatives, about Nature, the Universe, the esoteric... I feel relieved at having this peace in the answers to questions which once haunted me unceasingly. These answers I stumbled upon, or they happened to strike me quite unexpectedly without warning.

I don't even like mystery novels or mystery television programs. I don't like mysteries, I need truth and peace.

Algernon is a liar, dude. Tigers are good guys, yeah they might seem like tough assholes on the oitduse, but on the inside they just want to be liked and respected. RE. SPECT. WALK!!!!Are you talking to me?Anyways, I'm guessing Al is the culprit. He lost the marbles Minnie and Moocher (who names their fucking marbles? I means trees are cool, but marbles?) and now he is trying to steal from dude and his gang. That's not cool. Encyclopdia, which is a book or collection of books, needs to be put the back hand to Al and GET HIS MAN!!!
