what children teach us

While reading The Fifth Mountain, which- at last -I'm about to finish reading,the following sentence caught my attention:

" A child can always teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires."

Perhaps the reason that made me stop at this sentence in specific is that I deal with children on a daily basis. Obviously, I'm starting to get interested and attracted to anything that has to do with these creatures and with their special world.

I liked what Paulo Coelho wrote here, it's so true...

In my world children deal with me!

Yesterday the first graders ran to me saying " You are not to leave home! You are to play with us!"

Orders are orders! :)
