Birds never sing in caves (Leo F. Buscaglia)

Birds never sing in caves (Leo F. Buscaglia)

One thing that Thoreau says is that: “Birds never sing in caves.” And neither do we. In order to learn, you’ve got to be free to experiment, to try, free to make mistakes. That’s the way you learn. I can understand your mistakes and I profit greatly from mine. The secret is not to make the same one twice. But I need to be free to experiment and to try. Give me that chance. Allow me the freedom to be and to be myself and to find the joy in need. Don’t give me your hang-ups! Let me find and overcome my own!”

I ‘d like to close with a quote from Leo Rosten which, in his very special way, says it all:

“In some way, however small and secret, each of us is a little mad… Everyone is lonely at bottom, and cries to be understood; but we can never entirely understand anyone else, and each of us remains part stranger even to those who love us… It is the weak who are cruel; gentleness can only be expected from the strong… Those who do not know fear are not really brave, for courage is the capacity to confront what can be imagined… You can understand people better if you look at them, no matter how old or impressive they are as if they are children. For most of us never really mature; we simply grow taller… Happiness comes only when we push our brains and hearts to the farthest reaches of which they are capable…The purpose of life is to matter- to count, to stand for something, to have it make some difference that you lived at all.”
