"We can give our children only two things.
One is roots,
the other is wings"
This is not a new quote, yet everytime I read it- it has a freshness about it and seems so eternal. This one line covers a whole book on parenting, teaching and coaching.
Today I also read a small book on the joy of books. One of those gift books with little couplets and nice paintings. I just love the way paintings and verse are chosen. As I have resolved not to buy any more books, I reluctantly put it back on the shelf of the bookstore. But I have a feeling I will be going back for it.
