Quotation – May 25, 2012

…Each nugget of information was fascinating.  the world was full of newfound marvels and he wanted to share the excitement with everybody.  They all did.  They had a certain sense.  It wasn’t a sense of ennui or cynicism.  It was …
A sense of wonder.
That was it.  A sense of wonder, in the fine old original meaning of the word.  They wondered at their world.  Because when you did that, everything was wonder-full.

Niven, Pournelle, Flynn  Fallen Angels  p. 137
