A blog about the many things I love, like languages, travel, good music, soccer, art, yoga, history, philosophy. Practicing daily to be still, kind & grateful. Father of two perfect children.

 

In spite of language, in spite of intelligence and intuition and sympathy, one can never really communicate anything to anybody. The essential substance of every thought and feeling remains incommunicable, locked up in the impenetrable strong-room of the individual soul and body. Our life is a sentence of perpetual solitary confinement.

Which traits are MOST important to teach your kids? Responsibility tops the list for both liberals and conservatives, but opinions diverge from there.

Wow. Curiosity only shows up in the consistently liberal category. I’d put that on equal footing with being responsible. I’d also replace hard work with perseverance. 

Kindness, gratitude, empathy, hard-working.
