This is my all time, favourite quote, from one of my favourite books - Decipher by Stel Pavlou...I read this quote everyday when I wake up....

“Never lose your sense of wonder and amazement. Never be blasé. Because then, one day, when the really big, and truly important things do come along, you’ll be in a position to appreciate them.” – Jon Hackett “Decipher” by Stel Pavlou

I love your favorite quote, Luck.!

It is quite similar to the one I chose recently as my own favorite quote for another site:

"He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. Albert Einstein"

Keeping our eyes open!

Thank you Luck.
Love,

I completely agree with everyone that has posted here. I truly believe that disinterest and complacency with the world around us is one of the plagues of humanity. If we always desire to learn new things and find the simple beauty in everything around us then we will be motivated to do great things for the world. Thanks for sharing the quote!!!!
