the world we live in.

Prisioned in paved cities,
and blindfolded by impulses and necessities,
we tend to disregard the system of nature in which it stands.

It is only at infrequent moments when man finds himself beneath the starts, at sea perhaps, or in a moonlit meadow on a foreign shore, that he contemplates the nautral world- and he wonders.

Yet it is your essence to wonder, on some primeval hilltop, perhaps half a million years ago the first man raised his eyes to the sky and wondered.

There was the first initial spark of philosophy.

"God does notice us, and He watches over us. But it is usually through another person that He meets our needs. Therefore, it is vital that we serve each other"  
- Spencer W Kimball (quoted by Dieter Uchtdorf)
