Voltaire – the right question(s)

Voltaire said,
Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers. 
What does he mean; that questions, inquiry and indecision, are better than answers?  
In keeping with attention and accolade on wonder (rather than perhaps even wisdom, depending…) is the continued desire and determination to learn, to grow and even grapple with knowledge; yet, the reality that,
The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing.
What keeps us on this journey to learn, this never ending and expanding endeavor but to think and believe,
There is so much out there and perhaps true tunes amid all this noise.
To Voltaire, “I don’t know where I am going, but I am on my way.”
After all,
Common sense is not so common.
