Poetry: On Teaching by Kahlil Gibran
Then said a teacher, Speak to us of Teaching.
And he said:
No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half
asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
Lyrical: Slow Slow Tune by My Morning Jacket
True, daddy’s singing just for you/But do you hear him, baby, anymore?/Now that you’ve outgrown/This slow, slow tune

Quote: “For Children: You will need to know the difference between Friday and a fried egg. It’s quite a simple difference, but an important one. Friday comes at the end of the week, whereas a fried egg comes out of a chicken. Like most things, of course, it isn’t quite that simple. The fried egg isn’t properly a fried egg until it’s been put in a frying pan and fried. This is something you wouldn’t do to a Friday, of course, though you might do it on a Friday. You can also fry eggs on a Thursday, if you like, or on a cooker. It’s all rather complicated, but it makes a kind of sense if you think about it for a while.” – Douglas Adams
