George Steiner on the incompleteness of life

"We need a renaissance of wonder. We need to renew, in our hearts and in our souls, the deathless dream, the eternal poetry, the perennial sense that life is miracle and magic." - E. Merrill Root.

"I had some intuitive sense that in life and in the substance of the world there was a strangeness which would always defy and even mock our attempts at understanding." -  George Steiner.
