To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

The way the human brain absorbs and learns language is fascinating to me. The process a baby goes through learning all the intricate ins and outs of a mother tongue...it is just mind boggling.

And at time hysterical.
When playing queens and princesses with her sisters, Claire doesn't say 'Your highness'...instead it's...
'My highness.'

And that is just funny.
