“Wisdom begins in wonder.”


A child’s sense of wonder is a priceless commodity. Perhaps the only thing of equal value is the retention of that commodity into adulthood.

  3. That’s true. Wisdom begins when wondering. I remembered when I asked my philosophy teacher the question; what’s philosophy? He said that when you starts wondering, that is when philosophy starts

    Goes right along with Proverbs 9:10 — “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” The watchful, wondering, learning eyes of that little boy demonstrate just the kind of receptive attitude that leads to godly wisdom.

  15. Wonder sometimes ceases after the first few times something is encountered. We must be educated to view such an attitude as a mistake.

  16. Wonder, from the beginning of the human presence on earth, has shaped our world in many ways, for good or ill. Mostly for good, i think. This photo is so perfect as it represents a child’s innocence and the power of wonder. Thank you and it is true that often a picture is worth a thousand words. 🙂
