Youth - The child's body develops and grows like an acorn to its inevitable fate. The mental lessons of his parents, peers and teachers, effortlessly blend with his own. In his youth, his values, ideals and even his destiny are written in permanent ink on the parchment of his soul. In later years he will try to scratch them out - but ultimately his story is too solid, and the writings resist being erased.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
James Baldwin
