“First, the world is not merely the object of our understanding, it is the occasion for it. The world prompts us to inquiry by presenting itself as puzzling, and then it obligingly yields up its truths in response to our patient investigations. The world as such is meant to be known and it invites man to fulfill his role as systematic understander of the world. Imagine how frustrating it would be to be born with the desire to understand in a world which did not cooperate!”
Johnathan Lear

Josef Pieper
“Wonder does not make one industrious, for to feel astonished is to be disturbed.”
Josef Pieper, Leisure: The Basis of Culture

Edmond Rostand
“She’s a mortal danger without knowing it,
Undreamed of in her own dreams exquisite,
A roseleaf ambush where love lurks to seize
The unwary heart. The unwary eye that sees
Her smile sees pearled perfection. She can knit
Grace from a twine of air. The heavens sit
In every gesture. Of divinities, She’s most divine.”
Edmond Rostand

William Shakespeare
“But you are wise,
Or else you love not, for to be wise and love
Exceeds man's might; that dwells with gods above.”
William Shakespeare, Troilus and Cressida

Rajiv Joseph
“What kind of twisted bastard creates a predator and then punishes him for preying?”
Rajiv Joseph, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo
