On Philosophy and Wonder

"Wonder is the feeling of a philosopher; and philosophy begins in wonder." - Plato

"Philosophy begins in wonder. And, at the end, when philosophic thought has done its best,
the wonder remains." - Alfred North Whitehead

"Philosophy, though unable to tell us with certainty what is the true answer to the doubts it
raises, is able to suggest many possibilities which enlarge our thoughts and free them from
the tyranny of custom. Thus, while diminishing our feeling of certainty as to what things are,
it greatly increases our knowledge as to what they may be; it removes the somewhat arrogant
dogmatism of those who have never traveled into the region of liberating doubt, and it keeps
alive our sense of wonder by showing familiar things in an unfamiliar aspect." - Bertrand Russell

"Any genuine philosophy leads to action and from action back again to wonder, to enduring
fact of mystery." - Henry Miller

"Science is what you know. Philosophy is what you don't know." - Bertrand Russell
