“A mystery is not a puzzle waiting to be solved, but rather something for which there is no human solution. Mystery’s offspring is not frustration but awe, and that sense of awe grows in tandem with knowledge.”  – Eric Weiner

“There is an anaesthetic of familiarity, a sedative of ordinariness which dulls the senses and hides the wonder of existence. For those of us not gifted in poetry, it is at least worth while from time to time making an effort to shake off the anaesthetic. What is the best way of countering the sluggish habitutation brought about by our gradual crawl from babyhood? We can’t actually fly to another planet. But we can recapture that sense of having just tumbled out to life on a new world by looking at our own world in unfamiliar ways.”  – Richard Dawkins
