322. It would be a refreshing thing to admit...
actually, I would probably change it to something like: "we should LIVE as little children do." I'm not talking about throwing tantrums or stuff like that, no what I mean is look at a child, especially a young one, and the wide eyed wonder in which they view the world. They are sponges, ready to absorb all the knowledge the world has to offer, and they have the curiousity and will to discover it themselves if the answers aren't forthcoming. I think that too many times adults use their caution and skepticism a little TOO much, and close off that childlike wonder and curiousity entirely. What we learn can either make us wiser or misers depending on how we USE that knowledge. Approach life as a child, only using your adult wisdom to temper that curiousity only a little.
