Each second we live is a new and unique moment of
the universe, a moment that never was before and
never will be again. And what do we teach our children?
We teach that 2+2 make 4
and that Paris is the capital of France.
When will we also teach them what they are?
We should say to each of them: do you know what you are?
You are a marvel. You are unique. In all of the world there
is no other child exactly like you. In the millions of years
that have passed there has never been a child like you.
And look at your body - what a wonder it is! Your legs
and your arms, your cunning finger, the way you move.
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? You must cherish one another.
You must work - we must all work
to make this world worth of its children.
~ Pablo Casals~
