Monday thought of the week: a sacred fire

A thought:

Children are natural explorers. They have the true explorer’s interest in their immediate surroundings as well as in faraway places, and they are eager to know why things are as they are. If you are a wise parent, you will look upon these qualities in your child as a sacred fire – always to be fed, allowed to die out never.

– Dorothy Edwards Shuttlesworth, Exploring Nature with Your Child: An Introduction to the Enjoyment and Understanding of Nature (New York: Greystone Press, 1952), p. 17
