“Wisdom Begins In Wonder” Socrates

“Musical Wisdom Begins In Musical Wonder”

pure-pianopicnohatFirst of all, many posts I have researched regarding this quote are wrong. Yes, that is a bold statement but not intended to convey arrogance on my part. It is to point out that many are misquoting the quote itself. Is it, “Wisdom begins in Wonder” or “Wisdom begins with Wonder”? I can save you time and tell you that the former is correct and the latter is not. Why is it, then, that so many articles and blogs seem to make no differentiation between “in” and “with”. One word can make a difference. Say it a few times to yourself and you will see what I mean. (“With” wonder), conveys a sense that you possess this quality called, “wonder”. (“In” wonder) conveys a state of being: Something you are and not something separate from yourself. I can tell you without a doubt that my 40+ years of being involved in the arts, specifically the music arts, not only began in wonder, but this state of being “in wonder” inexplicably drives me each and every day. It is a part of my being and something separate from myself. Being in this constant state of “in wonder” creates abundant inspiration that is literally at my finger tips… pardon the pun! 🙂

Musical regards,
Josh Isenberg
