Everyday Teachers

A little quote three-pack to take with you on your wanderings this week.  I like to write them on index cards and ponder them when I am out on a walk, on the subway, or waiting in line. 

Wisdom begins in wonder. 



Every moment instructs, and every object: for wisdom is infused in every form.

It has been poured into us as blood; it convulsed us as pain; it slid into us as pleasure; it enveloped us in dull, melancholy days, or in days of cheerful labor;

we did not guess its essence, until after a long time.                

                                                                                    -Emerson, "Nature"


Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence,

and I learn, wherever state I may be in, therein to be content.

                                                                                    -Helen Keller
