When grown people speak of the innocence of children, they dont really know what they mean.
Through our own recovered innocence we discern the innocence of our neighbors.
Then you must teach my daughter this same lesson. How to lose your innocence but not your hope. How to laugh forever.
The loss of innocence is the most severe of growing pains.
It is better to run the risk of sparing the guilty than to condemn an innocent.
Always the innocent are the first victims. So it has been for ages past, so it is now.
