Universal Translator

Atunci când avem de a face cu copiii sau nepoţii noştri, unul dintre cele mai mari daruri să le putem da este pur şi simplu acordând o atenţie atunci când pune întrebări dificile, ascultarea observaţiilor lor despre lume, încurajându-i să vorbească cu persoane foarte diferite, şi nu prea orgolioşi despre experimentele lor atunci cand incearca lucruri noi.
- Hal Gregersen
