A child is attracted to the lights and fountain.
I wish I could keep a sense of wonder like this child’s.
“Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.”
Was it Socrates or Aristotle who said it? I was led to this discussion on Reddit and found it quite ironic — as the experts weighed in, literally it started to feel heavy.
I would rather not be led to that kind of wisdom.
True wisdom leads back to wonder — maybe someone else said it, but it doesn’t matter who did.
To be able to marvel at a toothless smile from a baby, a ray of sunlight through a window, the smell of rain on the soil, the melody of chirping birds — that would be enough.
