I know of nothing else but miracles...

Why, who makes much of a miracle?
As to me I know of nothing else but miracles
-Walt Whitman
There are many quotes that move and motive me, but none quite like Walt's. In this poem, Whitman is saying that miracles are everywhere and commonplace. He argues with the popular notion that miracles are rare and happen only occasionally.  
I agree with Walt and have been fortunate to witness and appreciate daily miracles. Sometimes, I even benefit from the big and rare variety of miracles.  
For me, the best part of being a teacher is having the opportunity to behold these holy and commonplace miracles all the time. As to me, I know of nothing else but miracles.

  1. I so agree! As teachers we are privileged to take part in miracles everyday.
