Lessons for Childhood

‘What are the three most important lessons for a child?’ I asked next morning

‘To inquire without purpose, to play without pretence, and to grow without worry.’ Master replied.

‘Is there nothing more important for a child?’ I retorted

‘Even if there is, only a child is capable of being without purpose, pretence and worry.’

‘Oh come on, even an adult can be without purpose, pretence and worry.’ I wasn’t going to give up.

‘Of what purpose is fire without heat?’ Master went on cleaning the garden
