The Wise Father is the Trusting Father

Posted by Samantha on December 11, 2010 in Thought for the day |

There are a hundred ways in which a boy can injure—if not indeed kill—himself. The more adventurous he is and the greater his initiative, the more ways he will find. If you protect him from each of the first hundred, he is sure to find the hundred and first. Though most men can look back on their boyhood and tremble at the narrowness of some of their escapes, most boys do in fact survive more or less intact, and the wise father is the trusting father.

Christopher Robin Milne, British author (1920 – 1996)
