scratching the surface

"If you can approach the world's complexities,

both its glories and its horrors,

with an attitude of humble curiosity,

acknowledging that however deeply you have seen,

you have only scratched the surface,

you will find worlds within worlds,

beauties you could not heretofore imagine,

and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size,

not all that important in the greater scheme of things."

  

Daniel C. Dennett (Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon)
