Know you what it is to be a child? It is to be something very different from the man of today. It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul.
Following the theme of pumpkin-love, I thought this quote to be perfect for this week’s wisdom. Who says a pumpkin is just a big piece of fruit or a mouse is only a rodent to be trapped? Didn’t Cinderella find them to be so much more?
Living in awe, seeing the world through your inner child, is one sure path to a rich and satisfying existence. Open your eyes today, don’t miss hearing the elves or meeting your fairy godmother.
