Seven Wonders of the World

A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present “Seven Wonders of the World.” Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:

 Popular list

While gathering up the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished writing her paper.

So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, “Yes, a little. 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 Word are:

 To See


To Hear

To Touch

To Taste


To Feel

To laugh


And to Love

A gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or bought by man.

Don’t be to busy to cherish and enjoy these Wonderful Treasures!

Thank you Brighid for the timely reminder.

    Very true that our senses are also wondrous things. I would also suggest some of the less visible things, like the internet, word processing, heart surgery or calculators.

      I would go with the internet and modern heart surgery, but would add cataract and hip surgery, both of which have made a great difference to my life.

    The biggest wonder of the world is that any of us came about at all. Now all I wish for, Grannymar, are seven lives. In the meantime I thank my parents on the red carpet of my life that they were overcome when they were. Otherwise I wouldn’t be here to annoy everyone. Insert smiley.
