What do we teach our children?…We should say to each of them:
Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique…
You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven.
You have the capacity for anything.
~ Pablo Casals ~
great quote… or they might become a teacher!
Yes, they might! Thanks, Jim. I resonated with this quote.
The infinite potential of a young child’s life truly is miraculous!
Oh, yes! It boggles my mind.
Jennie, this is wonderful!
I was thunderstruck. I’m glad you liked it, Charles.
Teaching empowerment and empathy at such a young age is so important – and powerful!
Yes, it is! Thank you, John.
Lovely quote and so they will be.
That’s an outstanding quote.
I felt the same way.
It is a great privilege to watch children turn into the people God created. I love the various things they try out along the way. Recently I was remembering my granddaughter’s obsession with ice skating and dreams of the Olympics which disappeared as suddenly as it appeared.(Fortunately I had only rented her equipment!)
I feel like the lucky one who stands alongside children and watch what they try. I see their falls and accomplishments. I cheer them along. Yes, their dreams change all the time.
When we moved to New England, I had no idea that people bought ice skates. I thought everyone who skated rented them at the rink, like renting shoes at a bowling alley. Ha!
Pablo got that right, Jennie.
Best wishes, Pete.
Yes, he did! Best to you, Pete.
To be a good teacher must be SO GOOD FOR THE SOUL! XX
You hit the nail on the head, Joy!
Oh wonderful! Indeed this should be so. Positivity is the backbone of life.
