Beauty smote his heart, he looked up from the forsaken land & hope returned to him

The purpose of children

I read this quote the other day and it’s stuck with me for a long time.  Something I think about daily.

Because children grow up, we think a child’s purpose is to grow up. But a child’s purpose is to be a child. Nature doesn’t distain what lives only for a day. It pours the whole of itself into each moment. Life’s Bounty is in its flow, later is too late.
