Time again

"It is familiarity with life that makes time speed quickly. When every day is a step in the unknown, as for children, the days are long with gathering of experience..."

-George Gissing

My note: But can't it be true: that everything old can be new once more, and so time may again pass in pauses as it did in childhood? Time, and time again, it is through the fresh eyes of innocence that we gain the most valuable experience. How precious is each moment then, each one a jewel from the hand of God! To be like a little child, to look upon everything as a wonder, is truly the work of a lifetime. God grant that I may always look upon the world with childlike eyes.
