Our Youth

We live in a society where young women like Heidi Montag view having several plastic surgeries in one day at age 23 as acceptable or posh.  Our world has become plastic and synthetic, the dollar isn’t the only thing losing value…

“And yet what we teach children in school is 2 + 2 = 4 and Paris is the capital of France. What we should be teaching them is what they are. We should be saying: “Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the world there is no other child exactly like you. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything! Yes, you are marvel.”

Pablo Casals

 

Poet Sevan [Apollo Poetry] had this quote as his Facebook status today and I thought how beautifully said.
