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 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.
