Children cry, laugh, and rage;
Grownups stifle feelings.
Children express thoughts.
Grownups suppress them.
Children hug their best friends.
Grownups sip coffee across tables, asking polite questions.
Children love without fear and believe what seems impossible.
Grownups love guardedly, and believe only what they see.
Children embrace life,
And grownups fear death.
“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” — Matthew 18:3-4
