Children are very nice observers, and they will often perceive our slightest defects.

It is not enough to like good books.  You must be a good book yourself.

Francois Fenelon (1651-1715) was a French theologian, poet, and writer.  He has been widely remembered as the author of THE ADVENTURES OF TELEMACHUS.

Harvesting learning each day—

Listen with purpose

Endless landscape never rests—

Even silence speaks

Never one regret

Lifetime’s sweethearts together—

Day’s sunny side up
