Wonder and Curiosity

Wonder is not the same thing as curiosity. Monkeys and cats are full of curiosity, but they are not full of wonder. Curiosity demands an answer but wonder gazes at the Truth. Curiosity is concerned with facts; wonder is concerned with meaning. Curiosity is restless; wonder is at Peace!

From Dwight Longenecker's book "St Benedict and St. Therese; The Little Rule and the Little Way."

  1. Thanks for this winsome quote. I may use the concept in my Garden of Eden catechism class.

Keep in mind while posting:
1) Please respond ON TOPIC to the article at hand.
2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
