Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. I think it's in my basement... let me go upstairs and check.

He who wonders discovers that this in itself is a wonder.

There is something about illusionists, isn't there: magic tricks and optical illusions. I think it's because it makes us wonder, like Escher said, and wonder by definition makes us look outside ourselves. Dr Colosi
always says that the undeniable awe we each experience when we look at the universe honestly is the first step in both philosphy and holiness.
