The Children's Magazine for Grown-Ups
"For all knowledge and wonder (which is the seed of
knowledge) is an impresion of pleasure in itself."
Author, Philosopher, Advocate of
the scientific method
"There is a type of writing which some
critics deploringly call the 'gee whiz' school. The author,
they point out, wanders about wide-eyed and breathless, seeing
everything as larger than life. If my films - and this book -
smack here and there of gee whiz, well, 'Gee whiz!' To some of
us, all that meets the eye is larger than life, including life
itself. Who can match the wonder of it?"
Amerian film director
"We need first of all to foster, in
ourselves and in others, a contemplative outlook. Such an
outlook arises from faith in the God of life, who has created
each individual as a 'wonder' (cf. Psalm 139:14). It is the
outlook of those who see life in its deeper meaning, who grasp
its utter gratuitousness, its beauty and its invitation to
freedom and responsibility."
Pope John Paul
