Let Your Puppy Out
“The ability to retain a child’s view of the world with at the same time a mature understanding of what it means to retain it, is extremely rare – and a person who has these qualities is likely to be able to contribute something really important to our thinking.” – Mortimer Jerome Adler
It’s inside all of us – that enthusiasm of childhood (puppyhood for some of our friends). Rediscover the simple joy and awe of youth and carry it with you no matter what your age. Let your “puppy attitude” out to play in the world. Be a gift.
Love the photos!
I love the quotes. Perfect for me today! Thank you!
I like the Adler quote, and I agree. Sweet photos, too! Thank you! ~ Lily
Sometimes as adults we are too self-conscious of our proper adult behaviours (and worries, stresses, etc.) that we forget to see the awesomeness of the world through kid’s (or puppy’s) eyes. Thanks for the reminders and cute pictures too!
Great post and photos! I have to remind myself of this from time to time. Thanks for sharing and reminding me. 🙂
Greetings from Scotland! Thanks for dropping by our blog. We rehome around 100 Springers a year in our small country, but some, like Fudge, need to stay in our care permanently. Love the puppy photos.
Great quotes; I totally agree! I adopted a puppy back in January, and she is a constant reminder for me as an artist to take a more simplistic, child-like view of the world, and bask in the wonder of it all!
I consider this ability to be a survival skill – one for appreciating the little things in life that are really the big things. Thanks for the post!
