Quote of the Day 2014

Quote 001

“Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them. The extraordinary will take care of itself.”William Martin, The Parent’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents

  1. I love this!! My husband and I tried to make the ordinary seem like an adventure when our children were growing and now as adults they see wonder everywhere 🙂 The Ordinary is what makes life so extraordinary 🙂
