People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.
--St Augustine

and there are others so self obsessed who never wonder at what's around themselves...
or perhaps I'm being cynical tonight!

A great thought du jour. Augustine is a favorite of mine. So are you :)

Showing a contadiction to be thoughtful of. Thanks

Katie....yup, there are those....but I think they don't really look inside themselves either. Interesting how self-absorption is a contradiction really.....unaware of what is around them, and unaware of what is really ticking inside them. Sad.

hey Layla......and so are you.

Marja....can't accept any kudos here....will pass them onto St. Augustine, one prolific and insight dude he was. :)
