I’ve never heard or seen this quote before, at least not to my memory, but it is literally what happens for me when I interact with a darling…especially with respect to my children that I meet as a Guardian Ad Litem. For a few seconds, there’s no one in my world but them. I put on the back burner the darkness(es) they’ve faced and I see them for who they are and for who they can become. And…it catches me off guard every time. Gotta respect the kiddos!
“When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments — tenderness for what he is and respect for what he may become.” Louis Pasteur, French chemist and microbiologist
