Joseph de Maistre
Most kids are smarter than most grown-ups. Kids see the world in black and white... They look through all the garbage and see a world run by fools and dullards and lazy people. And there's nothing they can do about it because they have no power.

What will it be able to do ten or 20 years from now, or 50 years from now?
The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days.
