The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
– Albert Einstein
Life consists in penetrating the unknown, and fashioning our actions
in accord with the new knowledge thus acquired.
– Leo Tolstoy
Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man's desire to understand.
– Neil Armstrong
Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don't let them scare you unduly,
for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.
– R.I. Fitzhenry, writer & publisher
