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 hating us.-
Whoever wants to partake of everything that is good
must at the given hour know how to be little.
Nietzsche in Human, All Too Human.
