This quote belongs toPlato (428/427 or 424/423 – 348/347 BC).
You never outgrow the child within you. You carry your past along with you wherever you go. As an adult, it is important to stay connected to this “inner child.” You can rediscover the activities that you enjoyed the most as a child and continue them in adulthood. You will find yourself reenergized with more enthusiasm and ready for dynamic action. In play, we reveal attitudes that may remain hidden in our adult self – our confidence, our drive to win, our pleasure in participation, and more. Watch your own children at work and at play to regain that optimism in life and to put into practice that simple joy of living!
