Learn small things from Children

Take time to listen to the children playing.
From their laughter, learn lessons in the innocence.
From their openness, learn lessons in Trust.
From their Guilelessness, learn lessons in truthfulness and sincerity.

It isn't maturity that robs us of these virtues: It is immaturity, embittered by disappointment. With maturity comes understanding; from understanding comes acceptance;
and from acceptance, finally, comes wisdom.

Pay more attention to children's utterances. Often, in their very lack of sophistication, they achieve the simple clarity of wisdom.
