The Seven Wonders of the World

I love the story about the teacher who asked her students to list what they thought were the Seven Wonders of the World. Most of the votes were for things like: Egypt’s Great Pyramids, the Taj Mahal, the Grand Canyon, the Panama Canal, the Empire State Building, St. Peter’s Basilica and the Great Wall of China. The teacher then noticed that one student had not turned in her paper yet. She asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, “Yes. 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: to see, to hear, to touch, to taste, to feel, to laugh and to love.”
What an insight into true reality that is, because nothing has value if we can’t or don’t appreciate it.
