Marvelous You

“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michaelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”

Let’s be worthy of these inspiring words from Pablo Casals. Let’s be marvelous today! Write on!

  1. This is the most relevant thing I’ve read in a while, Karin. So damn true.

    • Dear Marvelous One,

      Thank you so much for your note. I just love Pablo’s whole

      vision of a world where we all realize how truly amazing

      we all are. When I copied his words to my blog, the type

      was huge, but I decided I loved that because it made his

      lovely thoughts even bigger!

      Write on,
