Philosophy is Wonder

"Philosophy begins with wonder, and even now it is wonder that causes philosophers to philosophize. At first they wondered about the obvious difficulties and then they gradually progressed to puzzle about the greater coming to be of the universe. Whoever is puzzled and in a state of wonder believes he is ignorant .... (and begins to Philosophize) ....."
Aristotle, Metaphysics, 1.2 982b.
