A Quote by Mary Chapin Carpenter on circle, life, and wonder

Sometimes you get there in spite of the route
Losing track of your life and what it's about
The road seems to know when to straighten right out...
I could wonder if all of it led me to you
I could show you the arrows and circles I drew
I didn't have a map, it's the best I could do
On the fly and on the run

A Quote by Dave Matthews on moon and wonder

Satellite in my eyes
Like a diamond in the sky
How I wonder
Satellite strung from the moon
And the world your balloon
Peeping Tom for the mother station

A Quote by Rachel Louise Carson on joy, mystery, and wonder

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder... he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.

A Quote by Dave Matthews on space, stars, and wonder

Lying on the roof counting the stars that fill the sky
I wonder if
Someone in the heavens looking back down on me
I'll never know
So much space to believe

A Quote by Sigurd Olson on awareness, curiosity, joy, and wonder

While we are born with curiosity and wonder and our early years full of the adventure they bring, I know such inherent joys are often lost.  I also know that, being deep within us, their latent glow can be fanned to flame again by awareness and an open mind.

A Quote by Sigurd Olson on awareness and wonder

Awareness is becoming acquainted with environment, no matter where one happens to be.  Man does not suddenly become aware or infused with wonder; it is something we are born with.

A Quote by Dave Matthews on space, stars, time, and wonder

Look
Here are we
On this starry night staring into space
And I must say
I feel as small as dust
Lying down here
What point could there be troubling?
Head down wondering what will
Become of me
Why concern we cannot see
But no reason to abandon it
Time is short but that's all right
Maybe I'll go in the middle of the night
Take your hands from your eyes, my love
Everything must end some time
Don't burn the day away

Dave Matthews
