Wonder and dissent

When you wonder, you are drawn out of yourself.*
(John O’Donohue)

when the universe makes me wonder, all is at it should be**

Nothing is perfect.  We can always imagine something better.

The healthiest dissent comes from within and not without, from wonder and not from cynicism.

It all begins within ourselves.

(*From John O’Donohue’s Eternal Echoes.)
(*Cirque de Soleil’s Varekai, quoted in Alex McManus’ Makers of Fire.)
