lifted us up in a kiss
so exalted we trembled
at the lightning flash
and bound as one, fell,
and drowned, without being unbound.

stretched out to Earth's limits,
orbited there, melded there
to one globe of wax, or a meteor's flame.

A strange door opened, between us,
and someone, with no face as yet,
waited for us there.

Wonder is the basis of worship.
Men love to wonder and that is the seed of our science.
He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder.
Wonder rather than doubt is the root of all knowledge.
All wonder is the effect of novelty on ignorance.
As knowledge increases, wonder deepens.

Wonders are many, and none is more wonderful than man; the power that crosses the white sea, driven by the stormy wind, making a path under surges that threaten to engulf him...
