Our first prompt for June is:

A wondrous invention

From Archenemies by Marissa Meyer:
Think about it. These symbols, they’re just lines on paper. But someone, at some point, had the idea to assign them a meaning. And not just that, but then to teach those meanings to other people! To envision a way for ideas and thoughts to be recorded and shared … it must have seemed like an impossible task at first, but they persisted, and think of all that’s led to. Isn’t that fantastic?

A wondrous invention

from The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett
"A box on legs?" he said.
The Luggage hurtled around the corner, its several hundred knees moving like pistons.
I do love The Luggage and narrowed it down, from several, to just two quotes. :lol:

A wondrous invention

From The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan
I found this video online once about these scientists who unintentionally invented a new shade of blue. They called it YInMn blue.
I thought it was cool but at the same time hard to believe, because how is it possible that YInMn didn't exist before?
YInMn, they said, was supposedly fade resistant. I scoffed a little when I saw that part. Everything fades.
