The Seven Wonders of The World

A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present “Seven Wonders of the World.” Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:

1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids

2. Taj Mahal

3. Grand Canyon

4. Panama Canal

5. Empire State Building

6. St. Peter’s Basilica

7. China’s Great Wall

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, “Yes, a little. I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there were so many.”

The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.”

The girl hesitated, then read, “I think the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ are:”

1. To See

2. To Hear

3. To Touch

4. To Taste

5. To Feel

6. To Laugh

7. To Love

The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.

The important thing is to question everything.

Things are not as they seem, nor are they otherwise.

What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

I’m an agnostic dyslexic insomniac that lies awake all night wondering if there really is a dog.

If reality wants to get in touch, it knows where I am.

If there were no hypothetical questions what would this say?

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
