A Quote by Christopher Pike on wonder, joy, bliss, silence, knowledge, and understanding

There is a difference between a question and a wonder.  I would prefer to answer only questions that will be useful to you.  A child looks up at the starry sky at night and wonders.  He is filled with the joy of the mystery of creation.  Why should I explain everything to you and take away that joy?  I will not.  The purpose of my words is to create silence, to create joy.  I am not here to stuff your head full of knowledge.  A child starts out innocent.  You ask him something and he says, "I don't know."  Then that child grows up and thinks he knows everything.  I'll teach you something, both of you.  I'll teach you to say, "I don't know," and be glad.  That is true knowledge.

A Quote by Saint Augustine of Hippo on mountains, people, travel, and wonder

People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.

Saint Augustine of Hippo (354 - 430)

A Quote by William Morris on complaints, darkness, day, deed, fear, gold, love, wonder, and world

Love is Enough Love is enough: though the world be a-waning, And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining, Though the skies be too dark for dim eyes to discover The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder, Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder, And this day draw a veil over all deeds passed over, Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter: The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.

William Morris (1834 - 1896)

A Quote by William James on books, history, philosophy, and wonder

O my Bergson, you are a magician, and your book is a marvel, a real wonder in the history of philosophy . . . In finishing it I found . . . such a flavor of persistent euphony, as of a rich river that never foamed or ran thin, but steadily and firmly proceeded with its banks full to the brim.

A Quote by William H. Sheldon on curiosity, day, death, learning, people, wonder, and world

There are those much more rare people who never lose their curiosity, their almost childlike wonder at the world; those people who continue to learn and to grow intellectually until the day they die. And these usually are the people who make contributions, who leave some part of the world a little better off than it was before they entered it.

A Quote by Walt Whitman on certainty, children, day, pity, and wonder

There was a child went forth everyday, And the first object he looked upon and received with wonder or pity or dread, that object he became, And that object became part of him for the day or a certain part of the day... or for many years or stretching cycles of years...

Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

A Quote by W. J. Johnston on force, good, energy, opportunity, power, and wonder

Many persons wonder why they don't amount to more than they do, have good stuff in them, energetic persevering, and have ample opportunities. It is all a case of trimming the useless branches and throwing the whole force of power into the development of something that counts.
