"Our culture has filled our heads but emptied our hearts, stuffed our wallets but starved our wonder. It has fed our thirst for facts but not for meaning or mystery. It produces "nice" people but not heroes. Beauty, and the wonder and fascination it elicits, is an essential human need. It is not an ornament."
"People of today and tomorrow need this enthusiasm of wonder if they are to meet and master the crucial challenges which stand before us."
"The man who has lost the faculty of being in wonder and struck with reverence is dead, as it were."
