On the capacity to be little.-

One must be as close to flowers, grasses and butterflies as a child, who does not tower over them. By contrast, we adults have grown too big for these things: we must descend and condescend to them. I think that all the while we are declaring our love to the grasses they must be h a t i n g  us.-
Whoever wants to partake of e v e r y t h i n g that is good must at the given hour know how to be little.

Nietzsche in Human, All Too Human.
