A Few Somewhat More Serious Thoughts on Mysteries:

   “The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ~W.B. Yeats

           “No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to    live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith.” ~R.A. Salvatore

“The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery.” ~Anais Nin

“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.” ~Max Planck

“There’s magic in the world. And it’s waiting to be found.” ~The Wishing Map

“Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.” ~Socrates

If there were no such thing as mysteries, we would invent them.

  2. These are great, Mitch! I especially love the quote: “No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith.” ~R.A. Salvatore

    Not exactly related, but the word “dragons” reminded me of one of my favorite quotes:

    Maps used to say there’d be dragons here. Now, they don’t. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t dragons. – Lorne Malvo, Fargo

  7. I’m reminded of the Far Side comic showing the Great Wall of China being completed, and the guy slapping on the last bit of mortar saying, “There! That should keep that stupid dog out.”
