A will to wonder

“As civilization advances, the sense of wonder declines.

Such decline is an alarming symptom of our state of mind.

Mankind will not perish for want of information; but only for want of appreciation.

The beginning of our happiness lies in the understanding that life without wonder is not worth living.

What we lack is not a will to believe but a will to wonder”.

— Abraham Joshua Heschel
