They say my verse is sad: no wonder.Its narrow measure spansRue for eternity, and sorrowNot mine, but man's.This is for all ill-treated fellowsUnborn and unbegot,For them to read when they're in troubleAnd I am not.
A. E. Housman
My sense of god is my sense of wonder about the universe.
God does not die on the day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illumined by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reason.
Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart?
Cats are the runes of beauty, invincibility, wonder, pride, freedom, coldness, self-sufficiency, and dainty individuality - the qualities of sensitive, enlightened, mentally developed, pagan, cynical, poetic, philosophic, dispassionate, reserved, independent, Nietzschean, unbroken, civilised, master-class men.
H. P. Lovecraft
If you're talking to a child, you're going, 'This is the wonder of science and here's why I'm so fascinated by it.'
Future ages will wonder at us, as the present age wonders at us now. We do not need the praises of a Homer, or of anyone else whose words may delight us for the moment, but the estimation of facts will fall short of what is really true.
I loved things like Destiny's Child, and Amy Winehouse's first record came out when I was 11 years old. But as a young, young child, I was just surrounded by Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan - just massive, soulful voices.
Sometimes I listen to music and I wonder how did they get certain sounds.
Well, I also love magic, which is, you know, different than showmanship. Magic's an art where you use slight of hand or illusion to create wonder.
Wonder is the beginning of all wisdom.
A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.
