    A group of students were asked to list what they thought
    were the present Seven Wonders of the World.
    Though there was some disagreement, the
    following got the most votes:

    1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
    2. Taj Mahal
    3. Grand Canyon
    4. Panama Canal
    5. Empire State Building
    6. St. Peter's Basilica
    7. China's Great Wall

    While gathering the votes, the teacher noted
    that one quiet student hadn't turned in her paper yet,
    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 World are:
    1. to touch
    2. to taste
    3. to see
    4. to hear
    She hesitated a little, and then added,
    5. to feel
    6. to laugh
    7. and to love

    The room was so full of silence you could
    have heard a pin drop.

    Those things we overlook as simple and ordinary are truly wondrous.
    A gentle reminder that the most precious things
    in life cannot be bought and are not created by man.
