What are some of your favorite questions or topics in Philosophy?

I am interested mostly in ethics and the philosophy of life. Why philosophy over religion? Here's one explanation as to why philosophy is more interesting than religion, according to Bertrand Russell: "Philosophy, though unable to tell us with certainty what is the true answer to the doubts which it raises, is able to suggest many possibilities which enlarge our thoughts and free them from the tyranny of custom. Thus, while diminishing our feeling of certainty as to what things are, it greatly increases our knowledge as to what they may be; it removes the somewhat arrogant dogmatism of those who have never traveled into the region of liberating doubt, and it keeps alive our sense of wonder by showing familiar things in an unfamiliar aspect."
