Age has so many beautiful gifts, but one that I could live without is the pride and resentment we hold onto when we are in conflict with others. The forgiving, open and free spirit of children is our true nature; and I know I’ll be remembering this next time I’m feeling stubborn.

Aren’t we humans like five-star? Hard outside, but soft inside.
