KCT Thought of the Week, June 12, 2015

“In the evening Alice sat on her grandfather’s knee and listened to his stories of faraway places. When he had finished, Alice would say, ‘When I grow up, I too will go to faraway places, and when I grow old, I too will live beside the sea.’
‘That is all very well, little Alice,’ said grandfather, ‘but there is a third thing you must to.’
‘What’s is that?’ asked Alice.
‘You must do something to make the world more beautiful,’ said her grandfather.’” ~ ~ Barbarba Cooney in “Miss Rumphius”
