Progress, Far From Consisting In Change, Depends On Retentiveness. When Change Is Absolute There Remains No Being To Improve And No Direction Is Set For Possible Improvement: And When Experience Is Not Retained, As Among Savages, Infancy Is Perpetual.

In The First Stage Of Life The Mind Is Frivolous And Easily Distracted, It Misses Progress By Failing In Consecutiveness And Persistence. This Is The Condition Of Children And Barbarians, In Which Instinct Has Learned Nothing From Experience.
~ George Santayana, The Life of Reason, Volume 1, 1905
I Love Children - Especially When They Cry, For Then Someone Takes Them Away.
~ Nancy Mitford
