"I always tell people I'm a skeptic but not a cynic, because if you're a cynic, that means you've decided what you believe and you're done. But if you're a skeptic, you keep asking questions. It doesn't mean you always get the answers you want, but it means that your mind is always open to the possibility that the answer is there."
