“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I have to agree with this quote. Sometimes, the best answers in life come from children. Maybe it’s due to their lack of exposure to this dark, corrupt world. Maybe it’s their innocence and naivety. But listen to a child talk about the world, and how simple it is to them. Simple solutions to simple problems that take grown men and women months to debate over. Simple solutions that take adults minutes or even hours to figure out. This child does it whilst doodling.
As we grow old, I do believe we become less connected to the world. We lose that care-free innocence that’s inside a child. We lose perspective on what really matters.
