Posts Tagged ‘All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten’

What I notice is that every adult or child I give a new set of Crayolas to goes a little funny.  The kids smile, get a glazed look on their faces, pour the crayons out, and just look at them for a while….  The adults always get the most wonderful kind of sheepish smile on their faces — a mixture of delight and nostalgia and silliness.  And they immediately start telling you about all their experiences with Crayolas.  …  Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon.  A happiness weapon.  A beauty bomb.  And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one.  It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air.  Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas.  And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight.  Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest.  And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.

Every person passing through this life will unknowingly leave something and take something away.  Most of this “something” cannot be seen or heard or numbered or scientifically detected or counted.  It’s what we leave in the minds of other people and what they leave in ours.  Memory.  The census doesn’t count it.  Nothing counts without it.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.  That myth is more potent than history.  That dreams are more powerful than facts.  That hope always triumphs over experience.  That laughter is the only cure for grief.  And I believe that love is stronger than death.
