Education of the future

Kahlil Gibran on children quote, article Education of the future from Conscious Parenting Book by Nataša Pantović Nuit
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.”  (Kahlil Gibran, On Children)
