Midweek Quotes

"It is the dim haze of mystery that adds enchantment to pursuit." –Antoine Rivarol

"Mystery is a resource, like coal or gold, and its preservation is a fine thing." –Tim Cahill

"She sometimes thought that even if what she wrote every day was doomed to disappear during the night, she would keep writing stories, just to make a daily pilgrimage to the realm of mystery and reverence and play." –Brian Morton, from the point of view of a character named Nora, from his novel A Window Across the River

Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man's desire to understand. –Neil Armstrong

"A child kicks his legs rhythmically through excess, not absence, of life. Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, "Do it again"; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun; and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we." –G. K. Chesterton, from the book Orthodoxy

"The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper." –Eden Phillpotts
