A special way of knowing

By Debra Dobbins

Whenever I see the word “intuition,” I think of typing my mother’s dissertation on Christian apologist C.S. Lewis in 1986. During that time “Dr. Mom” mentioned that Lewis married a divorced American woman, Joy Davidman, and that he did not find true happiness until his highly logical mind encountered Davidman‘s strong intuition.

"Intuition" comes from two Latin word parts, according to the American Heritage Dictionary. “In,” of course, meant, and still means, “in.” “Tueri” meant “to look at, view.”

There are many fine quotes on this word at http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/keywords/intuition.html.

Among them, my favorite is by English Romantic poet William Wordsworth: “Faith is a passionate intuition.”
