On Stopping to Smell the Roses

“He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”Stop to Smell the Roses - A Universe in a Rose
-Albert Einstein

The true secret of Albert Einstein’s genius was not his raw intellectual power but his ability to harness that intellect to a sense of pure wonder and intense curiosity in everything around him.   

In a world of endless distraction and mindless entertainments are our senses simply numbed to the simple beauty that is all around us every day?

Look close, there’s an entire universe in a single rose, if we just take the time to look.
