The Parish Church of St George the Martyr, Waterlooville


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:

1. Egypt’s Great Pyramid

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 girl had not finished. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. She replied “Yes, I couldn’t  make my mind up there were so many.” The teacher said, “well tell what you have and maybe we can help.” The girl hesitated and then read:

I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:

1. To see

2. To hear

3. To touch

4. To taste

5. To feel

6. To laugh

7. To love

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