“A man should hear a little music,
read a little poetry,
and see a fine picture every day of his life,
in order that worldly cares
may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful
which God has implanted in the human soul.”
.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.”
.
Socrates

“It is a happiness to wonder; –
– it is a happiness to dream.”
.
Edgar Allan Poe

“When we try to pick out anything by itself,
we find it hitched to everything else
in the universe.
.
John Muir

“The invariable mark of wisdom
is to see the miraculous in the common.”
.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“When you don’t cover up the world
with words and labels,
a sense of the miraculous returns to your life
that was lost a long time ago
when humanity, instead of using thought,
became possessed by thought.”
.
Eckhart Tolle

“Incidentally, the world is magical. 
Magic is simply
what’s off our human scale…
at the moment.”

Sunday Dinner: “Just For a Second…”

“Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things,

just sit still and let the world exist in front of you –

sometimes I swear that just for a second

time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt.

Just for a second.

And if you somehow found a way to live in that second,

then you would live forever.”

.

Lauren Oliver

that ripens you and gives you a deeper meaning.”
