Wonder is the beginning of wisdom. ~ Socrates
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed. ~ Albert Einstein
It is said that Leonardo once stared for hours upon hours in wonder at the wings of dragonflies. Galileo wrote, "What exceeds all wonders, I have discovered four new planets and observed their proper and particular motions, different among themselves and from the motions of all the other stars."
Wonder kept the attention of these two great polymaths ~ on a scale from the minutest to the celestial ~ with unimaginable results. For this special Trojan Family Weekend event, we will explore together wonder's potential to inspire and create.
