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.
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence,
and I learn, wherever state I may be in, therein to be content.
