From Ravi Zacharias
Tragedy is the absence of God in the human experience.
A child gives reason and emotion its due and still seeks for wonder.
Wonder is that possession of the mind that enchants the emotions while never surrendering to reason.
Wonder is a grasp on reality that does not need constant high points in order to be maintained, nor is it made vulnerable by the low points of life's struggles.
Wonder sees the the ordinary in the extraordinary, and finds in the extraordinary the reaffirmations for what it already knows.
Wonder interprets life through the eyes of eternity while enjoying the moment, but never lets the momentary vision exhaust the eternal.
Even in much pleasure, you cannot escape weariness.
