In wonder all philosophy began, in wonder it ends, and admiration fill up the interspace; but the first wonder is the offspring of ignorance, the last is the parent of adoration
No man was ever yet a great poet, without at the same time being a profound philosopher.
Christianity is not a theory or speculation, but a life; not a philosophy of life, but a life and a living process.
In philosophy equally as in poetry it is the highest and most useful prerogative of genius to produce the strongest impressions of novelty, while it rescues admitted truths from the neglect caused by the very circumstance of their universal admission.
In wonder all philosophy began, in wonder it ends.... But the first wonder is the offspring of ignorance, the last is the parent of adoration.
