Make the Ordinary Come to Life

Quote - Make the Ordinary Come to Life 2

Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples, and pears. Show them how to cry when people and pets die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of the hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them. The extraordinary will take care of itself.
-William Martin
