 "her path to integrity"

"the wise questions children ask"

a little girl once asked, "why do grown ups say 'i have some time to kill?" she continued drawing the tiger she had been drawing all morning. "i wouldn't want to kill time. i would have less time to play." she meticulously drew and shaped the tiger's tail.

she looked up suddenly to ask her father, "baba? i wonder if grown ups say 'i have some time to kill' when they are dying?'"
