People don’t grow old, they just lose their imaginations – Bob Goff
Children are people, and they should have to reach to learn about things, to understand things, just as adults have to reach if they want to grow in mental stature. Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows. Most things are good, and they are the strongest things; but there are evil things too, and you are not doing a child a favor by trying to shield him from reality. The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil.
You can choose courage or you can choose comfort, but you cannot have both.
– Brene Brown
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
