You are a marvel

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe that will never be again... And what do we teach our children? That two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France.

We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move,...all are wonderful.

You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven, you have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?

We must all work to make the world worthy of its children.

 

What we sincerely believe regarding ourselves is true for us.

- Orison Swett Marden

 

If you treat an individual as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
