To Learn From Children

There is much to be learned from children: children who toss away what they cannot use; who build towers, forts from blocks and palaces from sand, then tear them down with one sweep of the hand; children, undismayed if they do not fit in yesterday's shoes.

We can learn from children: children, whose defeats are rarely recalled more than a day; who break with a friend, then make up the same way; who value an acorn, leaf, a broken penknife, a battered doll more than a costly toy and are untroubled by the view if the world in which they drifted off to sleep is not the one they waken to.
