wonder

A Quote by Albert Einstein on mystic, reality, science, wisdom, and wonder

The most beautiful and most profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical.  It is the sower of all true science.  He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.  To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of true religiousness.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on stars, imagination, and wonder

Forget everything you've ever learned about the stars and they'll once more be transformed into angels, or into children, or into whatever you want to believe at that moment.  It won't make you more stupid – after all, it's only a game – but it could enrich your life.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on mysteriousness, mystery, art, science, wonder, and spirituality

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

There is no such thing as an ordinary person, and no human being has ever fully seen or appreciated another. We are too vast.

A Quote by Charles Ghigna on poetry, poem, poems, metaphor, whispers, wonder, and spiders

A POEM IS A SPIDER WEB

 

A poem is a spider web

Spun with words of wonder,

Woven lace held in place

By whispers made of thunder.

A Quote by Joni Mitchell on stars and wonder

Yesterday a child came out to wonder
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

A Quote by David Gray on search, stars, time, and wonder

Wonder in everything
No matter how great or small...
Same thing that's scrawled across the stars
Is written under our skin...
There's a time to search for understanding
Sometimes you just got to sing
New horizons, new horizon within

David Gray
