Review

I began by pondering over the Moscow exhibition, and finished with the subject of wonder in general. My conclusions on the subject of wonder were these: 'To be astonished at everything is of course stupid, and not to be astonished at anything is much more admirable, and for some reason accepted as good form. But I doubt wether it is so in reality. I think being surprised at nothing is much more stupid than being surprised at everything. More than that: being surprised at nothing is almost the same as respecting nothing. And a stupid man is incapable of respect.'
