If I wasn't around children every day of my life, I think I would have completely lost it by now.  Everything is a big deal to a small child; a pile of leaves, soap bubbles, an airplane in the sky, things we become indifferent to as we get older.  Life isn't so beautiful through adult eyes, but through child eyes every little thing is a miracle.  So I try to see it through child eyes more.

You put it beautifully. Children have it right.

Only if we all could think the same way children do, they see everything simple as it look, I try to do the same, but it doesn't work all the time, sometimes I fail.

Seeing things through the eyes of a child is as close to true happiness as we could hope to get.

I think one of the secrets to a happy life is remembering that we were once them. We are them, just a bit bigger now.

The world probably wouldn't be here now if it weren't for children. They somehow make this depraved world seem just a little bit more pure.

Playing with kids is like one of the greatest joys on our planet.
