astonishment

A Quote by Milan Kundera on novels, writing, astonishment, existence, and humanity

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on vexation, life, and astonishment

Vex not thy spirit at the course of things; they heed not thy vexation.  How ludicrous and outlandish is astonishment at anything that may happen in life.
