A thought for you, from the brilliant Pablo Casals:
"When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to them, 'Do you know what you are? You are a marvel! You are unique. In all of the world there is no other child like you. And look at your body ... what a wonder it is. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is like you, a marvel? You must cherish one another. You must work -- we must all work -- to make this world worthy of its children.'"
