Such a question cannot be put; it is senseless!
The question I have asked these gentlemen to meet to discuss is a military one.
The question is that of saving Russia.
That is the question on which I want your opinion, and he sank back in his chair.
The other generals, however, understood it and, leaving aside the question of Moscow, spoke of the direction the army should take in its retreat.

Challenged by this question Pierre raised his head and felt a need to express the thoughts that filled his mind.
Though with the intimacy now established between the wounded man and Natasha the thought occurred that should he recover their former engagement would be renewed, no one--least of all Natasha and Prince Andrew--spoke of this: the unsettled question of life and death, which hung not only over Bolkonski but over all Russia, shut out all other considerations.

And by old habit he asked himself the question: Well, and what then?
The very question that had formerly tormented him, the thing he had continually sought to find--the aim of life--no longer existed for him now.
That dreadful question, "What for?" which had formerly destroyed all his mental edifices, no longer existed for him.
To that question, "What for?" a simple answer was now always ready in his soul: "Because there is a God, that God without whose will not one hair falls from a man's head."
"Tell me, you did not know of the countess' death when you decided to remain in Moscow?" asked Princess Mary and immediately blushed, noticing that her question, following his mention of freedom, ascribed to his words a meaning he had perhaps not intended.
With Mademoiselle Bourienne's help the princess had maintained the conversation very well, but at the very last moment, just when he rose, she was so tired of talking of what did not interest her, and her mind was so full of the question why she alone was granted so little happiness in life, that in a fit of absent-mindedness she sat still, her luminous eyes gazing fixedly before her, not noticing that he had risen.

To this question historians reply that Louis XIV's activity, contrary to the program, reacted on Louis XVI.

That is a question for history.
In our time the majority of so-called advanced people--that is, the crowd of ignoramuses--have taken the work of the naturalists who deal with one side of the question for a solution of the whole problem.
In regard to this question, history stands to the other sciences as experimental science stands to abstract science.

He frowned as he considered the question.
I just wanted to ask you a question.
Sarah asked the question with genuine interest.

Why did he avoid answering her question?
She was beginning to relax when he launched the question.
Mary studied her reflectively and finally spoke in a hushed tone, as if she didn't actually want to know the answer to her question.
It was a statement, not a question.

It was the million dollar question.
That was the sixty-four dollar question.

Instead, I asked a question.
"Martha didn't call Quinn," Betsy said, not wording it as a question.

I asked where the house in question was located and was told it was several blocks away and this was a staging area.

Jule glanced at the vamp, who shrugged in response to his silent question about healing.

Which begs the question: What happens to you in one week?
It was the same question she'd been asking herself.
Uncertain how to respond, Deidre laughed uncomfortably at the amount of bewilderment his question contained.
A better question is why you don't want me to know.
Deidre hugged herself, hearing the unasked question about their deal.
Her intent gaze was inquisitive, her eyebrows raised in a silent question.
Cynthia halted her make-work scrubbing, surprised by the question.
Martha ignored the question.
After she handed the stub-pencil map back to him, she repeated her question.
Fred just snorted, but Dean noted the old man didn't deny the question.
They might still want to ask me a question or two.
His question caught Fitzgerald totally off balance.
Dean's question was met with a smile and a kindergarten finger to Fred's shushing lips.
Then he answered his own question.
The cat declined a lap-offer in favor of the purple rocker, Martha's chair, as if to question the whereabouts of her missing friend.
The question of who was responsible for Josh-the-skeleton coming to his untimely demise was even more obscure.
"Good question," Cynthia answered.
The big question remains, who would have access to all that theater paraphernalia?
Jennifer paused so long before answering that Dean thought she'd not heard his question.
What in God's name would make you ask a personal question like that?
"It sounds as if you were very fortunate in your choice of a husband," Dean said honestly, but he noted she'd failed to answer his earlier question.
He wanted to make sure he had time to hook up with Billy Langstrom and question the young man, whom he knew would be there.
Driving was out of the question as the mid-morning parade, scheduled to begin in a few minutes, was forming on Main Street, which was now closed to traffic.
Dean asked without answering the question.
It was impossible for Dean to get close enough to Billy to question him.
He just laughed, ignoring the question and turned instead to Cynthia, extending his hand and introducing himself.
Cynthia smiled and asked, Jennifer's question is legitimate.
As much as Dean wanted to press his guest on the possibility that the bones were those of her father, he realized such a question was tasteless and inappropriate.
She didn't answer and he repeated his question.
He tried to formulate a non-accusatory question but the image of Billy Langstrom's crushed body kept getting in the way.
The only question was who would croak first.
However, it begged the question of what had caused the old guy so much concern in the first place.
Dean asked, the one question that had bothered him from the start.
She answered his unasked question.
I just asked a question.
To answer your question, yes, he was supposed to be up on the mountain.
You're a big question asker, aren't you?
Fred considered the question.
She answered her own question before he had a chance.
Dean made a statement, not a question.
Calling Mrs. Langstrom would probably have been their best lead, but that was out of the question.
Dean wanted to question him further, but he abruptly turned on his heels and walked away.
They spent the evening in their private quarters mulling over the possibilities and skirting the question that Lydia had actually killed her boss, which in spite of mounting concern, Dean continued to find unlikely.
The Deans looked at one another, the unspoken question of what to do painted on each face.
There was a question of jurisdictions and when Weller volunteered that Martha was safe and comfortable at Bird Song where she'd spent the last six months, no one seemed to protest.
It was lunchtime before Dean was able to question Martha in detail about her original discovery, but the results were disappointing.
Dean stewed over the question as the business of Bird Song continued.
Weller asked the question amid an unrestrained chuckle.
The nagging question of Fitzgerald continued to block out the other important matters Dean should have been concentrating on.
The big question remained: was it a suicide?
His duty was beyond question the most important there was: protecting the souls of the dead mortals and dead-dead Immortals.
I sent him to ask you a question.
Will you answer a question for me, Gabriel?
Her question was a good one: did he like who she was two days ago better?
You answered my question.
He wasn't expecting the question.
Even his lingering doubt about the real cost of her deals with Darkyn didn't extend to the question of whether or not he was meant to be with the woman in his arms.
Darkyn's question hit home.
That question is for your mate.
"Who?" he asked, unwilling to tell her that he already knew the answer to this question.
It was a fair question.
The last word was upturned, as if it were a question.
Jonathan wasn't one to question intuition.
She refused to give in to the nagging question of brain damage.
Alex had the answer to a question that was important to him.
When he turned back to her, the gaze was as direct as the question.
She'd been asked that question more than once while out and didn't understand it, unless it was some sort of odd Southern greeting.
She swallowed hard at the question, panic fluttering through her.
She trusted him without question and yet, there was more to him than she really knew.
He'd obeyed the Code and his predecessor without question, until forced to choose between them and his conscience.

Toby chattered, his tone lifting in a question that didn't penetrate the in-between world in which she'd fallen.

You never did answer my question about Andre.
She almost lost her stomach at the innocent question from the middle-aged matriarch of the bed and breakfast.
She jabbed him in the chest with each question, unwilling to back down.
Gabriel met her question with silence and another look of passing amusement.
"No," she said, crossing her arms at the odd question.
Then you better answer this question right.
His jaw clenched at the question.
He felt Katie's gaze settle on him at the question.
Giovanni gave a half-laugh at the blunt question, and Rhyn sat.
Do I miss you even when I know I can call you and you.d come without question?
Do not question me again.
What kind of stupid question is that?
She tapped it and repeated the question.
Ne'Rin turned to him, and he realized he hadn't answered his advisor's question.
He was puzzled by the question given that she had written most of the plans.
He ignored her question, focused on her for the moment.
"You avoid my question," Mansr insisted.
The question seemed to bewilder the woman.
"I guess so," he answered, surprised at the question.
David Dean felt a momentary twinge of the here-we-go-agains that floated by on the wings of his wife's question.
She managed to keep her pregnancy secret until an abortion was out of the question and Donnie was born.
Then Cynthia answered her own question before biting into her toast.
Fred asked the question like a learned professor, speculating on a universal problem of time, space and the creation of the universe.
He skirted the question.
Dean asked the question before he remembered futility of such a query.
Fred jumped in before Dean could question the math.
I learned a long time ago, that anyone who asks that question can't understand my answer anyway.
Didn't they question you at the polling place?
Dean ignored her question as Effie moved to look closer at the injury.
Dean wanted to question Edith further but she rose, with Effie following, her arm on Edith's elbow and the pair returned upstairs.
Again, Weller ignored Dean's question.
It was Dean's turn to ignore a question.
Fred ignored the question and sat at the table, his patience expired.
Corday asked, directing his question to Dean.
Corday asked the question as casually as if he was inquiring about the weather.
Corday never volunteered any information and when Dean asked him outright if Shipton was still alive, the officer ignored the question and changed the subject.
The police spoke to Fred next, while Dean strolled back toward his quarters, with Corday's question concerning his wife's return echoing in his mind.
Dean caught his breath before answering her inelegant question.
Dean had pondered that very question during his sheep-counting hours the prior night.
He answered his own question.
"Seems to be some question about that," Fred said.
Dean told her the police wanted to question her.
She took her time before answering, as if rolling the question around in her mind.
That raises the question about Donnie not being able to talk.
Then she answered her own question.
Fred looked up from his notes and answered Dean's unasked question.
He carefully put a star next to the unanswered question.
But I'm not sure it answers the question.
It wasn't a question, just a statement.
She made a choking, gagging motion at her throat in answer to Donnie's written question.
He shrugged and pointed at his first question.
Any time anyone tries to raise the subject to Donnie, he just turns away and acts as if he didn't hear the question.
Weller ignored the question and handed Dean a sheaf of papers.
I even hear from the grapevine, there's some question she was pregnant.
"I can answer my own question," Cynthia said quietly.

Primarily, it was Jerome Shipton's severed climbing rope that remained a knotty question that wouldn't go away.
What remained was the question why.

However, someone would have to question the note in the first place.
Once you realize that, you have to question everything she said.
Let me ask you a question.
That produced a laugh from both of them and put the question to rest.
"You don't want any, do you Jackson." she said more as a command than a question.
None of them had ever dared ask this question.
Would you please be serious for one minute and answer my question?
I was about to ask you the same question.
It wasn't a question, but a statement, as if it were inevitable.
Neither would ever question nor gossip about their bosses.
Can I ask you a question?
She finished with a question and answer period and there were quite a few queries that seemed to impress her.
That's a good question.
Now that is the million dollar question.
Hmm, that's a damn good question.
That is a very good question.
Katie didn't give the question a moment's consideration.
She was surprised to see him with Lori, rolling in the hay - and there was no question about what was going on this time.
Was he using the work to avoid answering her question?
But you didn't answer my question.
He expected her to name off Tim and answer his unasked question about the relationship between the two of them.
He'd been about to ask a similar question.
What he wanted from her was a question she feared to ask.
She looked up at him, and he answered the unasked question.
Her question slid away from her mind as he maneuvered her into the bedroom and lowered her onto the bed.
You never answered my question.
Answer the question, Rhyn.
"One more question," Katie said.
A small smile crossed Rhyn's face, answering Gabe's question without words.
She took her time considering this question.
I know you had to ask but I'll save you the next question, she added.
Otherwise, it had looked as if further education was out of the question.
Dean continued to question Mayer but learned nothing more of substance.
He just wants a wife so people won't question his sexuality.
Maybe they'd question it less if he'd stop trying to pick up pretty men at gay bars.
She turned abruptly, surprised at the question.
But to answer your question, I'm serious—it depends on where it happened.
I suppose that's the 64-dollar question.
He had to repeat the question.
He asked the question almost gleefully.
It's just another nagging question.
But I have to question their smarts if they're interested in Vinnie.
He briefly explained the situation to Winston, who had no problem detouring for the short time it would take to question the youth.
He was left listening to a dial tone and beginning to seriously question their bizarre relationship.
Fred thought a minute, but Dean answered his own question.
This guy's got the answer to every little kid's what-would-you-do-ifyou-had-a-million-bucks question.
Protesting was out of the question.
Dean ignored his question.
Then why was it each time he was around Cynthia Byrne the question kept coming back?
Dean didn't have an answer—to that question or a few others that nagged at him for the rest of the evening.
Answer the man's question.
He hung up before Dean could question him further.
He thought it might be important, seeing as you asked the question.
He answered his own question as he sipped on his beer.
It was more of a statement than a question.
Now, I've got a question to ask.
That's not my question.
He asked the question as much of himself as Monica.
She evaded the direct question.
It was the question Dean didn't want to hear.
"Sort of like climbing a mountain," Fred answered his own question, "'cause it's there?"
"Good question," Jonathan replied.
He took his time strolling down row after row of tents, pausing briefly to answer a young man's question about directions.
Dean ignored the question.
"Out of the question," snapped Winston.
I guess I wanted to ask you the classic question.
Their unplanned, unannounced engagement had stretched on indistinctly until Carmen began to silently question her lack of enthusiasm.
Carmen thought about the question a moment.
"Next question," Joan interrupted again.
Seven pair of eyes landed on Carmen as she considered the question.
That was an obvious question.
"I'd never question your memory," he said with a smile.
His lips were so soft and warm, seeking an answer to a primal question.
There was no question in her mind that Brutus had been feeding on the carcass, but did he kill it?
I guess that answers my question.

Please answer the question.
You really need me to answer that question?

I ask you a question, you answer with the honest truth.

"No," Bianca said to the unasked question.

And yet, the old question returned.
It was a question that only time could answer.
