    We have a saying in French: “La vérité sort de la bouche des enfants” – Truth comes out of children’s mouths…. it is true. Until we teach them to lie 😉

  2. What a great thought. Children see things so different from us. It’s a shame we can’t keep their innocence, as we get older

    YES! This isn’t so much about children, as it is about how we, adults and the children who learn from us, are limited by standards we accept without inspection or reservation. I overheard a child say about a female Mallard duck, that bird is ugly, because it’s brown and not colorful. No creature, human or not, is ugly, as all reflect the beauty of Creation.

    Yes, both beauty and ugliness are in the eye of the beholder, and why wouldn’t we choose to see the beauty?
