Quiz: Which Color Best Represents Your Childhood Memories?

 

 

Childhood is one of the happiest parts of our lives. It is said that a person is happiest during his/her childhood. I would agree on that statement and I would say that to an extent that this is true. If you are someone who is not from a developing country then you would know what I am saying. The fact is that many children living in poor families don’t have such rosy childhood as we have. They are often malnourished and often don’t get the same amount of love and care that we get. It is said that if you are born in even a mediocre family then you have won one of the greatest lotteries.

Because it is a fact that we don’t control where we are born and to whom we are born. It is just a matter of luck and people like us have already won the game. You might not know what it is like to be born in a poor family. Our society is setup in such a way that the poor is always stripped off opportunities. They don’t have ample opportunities in life and they have very few ways to make their living and support their family.

We should remember these things before we ask the question why the poor remains poor? The rich people have thousand of opportunities and time to hit on those opportunities. While a poor person doesn’t have that. We might feel that childhood is the happiest part of a person’s life but it might not be true for poor people.

It might just happen that it is their worst part and often how they come out of it is awe-inspiring.I hope you liked my short article. If you have any further insights into the topic then feel free to share it down in the comments section below.

“Because children grow up, we think a child’s purpose is to grow up. But a child’s purpose is to be a child. Nature doesn’t disdain what lives only for a day. It pours the whole of itself into the each moment. We don’t value the lily less for not being made of flint and built to last. Life’s bounty is in its flow, later is too late. Where is the song when it’s been sung? The dance when it’s been danced? It’s only we humans who want to own the future, too. We persuade ourselves that the universe is modestly employed in unfolding our destination. We note the haphazard chaos of history by the day, by the hour, but there is something wrong with the picture. Where is the unity, the meaning, of nature’s highest creation? Surely those millions of little streams of accident and wilfulness have their correction in the vast underground river which, without a doubt, is carrying us to the place where we’re expected! But there is no such place, that’s why it’s called utopia. The death of a child has no more meaning than the death of armies, of nations. Was the child happy while he lived? That is a proper question, the only question. If we can’t arrange our own happiness, it’s a conceit beyond vulgarity to arrange the happiness of those who come after us.”
Tom Stoppard, The Coast of Utopia

“Grown up, and that is a terribly hard thing to do. It is much easier to skip it and go from one childhood to another.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald Two Thousand Kisses a Day: Gentle Parenting Through the Ages and Stages

“It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”
L.R. Knost, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“Play is the highest form of research.”
Albert Einstein Peter Pan

“Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he’d had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother’s shoulder, and said, “Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.”
Anne Lamott, The Shadow of the Wind

“I know I was writing stories when I was five. I don’t remember what I did before that. Just loafed, I suppose.”
P. G. Wodehouse You Are Worthless: Depressing Nuggets of Wisdom Sure to Ruin Your Day

“On these magic shores children at play are for ever beaching their coracles. We too have been there; we can still hear the sound of the surf, though we shall land no more.”
J.M. Barrie, Corelli’s Mandolin
