Thoughts on growing from three wise men who always maintained a connection to childhood:
I’m youth, I’m joy, I’m a little bird that has broken out of the egg.
James M. Barrie
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis
Being born in a duck yard does not matter, if only you are hatched from a swan’s egg.
Hans Christian Andersen
I hope you grow today.
