Moliere (January 15, 1622 - February 17, 1673)
Moliere in Wikipedia
I always do the first line well, but I have trouble doing the others
The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.
Things only have the value that we give them
To live without loving is not really to live
Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death
When you are thwarted, it is your own attitude that is out of order
I love the babies. People ask me all the time how I can stand saying goodbye to them. The short answer is, the child leaves and I cry. But I know I met that child's needs and I hope they felt valued and loved during their time with us.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you
