An Aphorism is Born

Childhood ends when life as discovery ends and life as repetition begins.

  1. I suppose that is where the expression 'eternal child' comes into play. Those who cannot cope with life as mere repetition probably fail at the business of 'success' as well.

    For a true artist, life is forever a voyage of discovery.

    Of course, children actually delight in repetition and the sooner they can create their own little rituals, the more secure and happy they feel. Ironic, isn't it? In the same way as human beings build their own cages in the form of houses, children reach for adventure with one hand and hide their eyes with the other.

    It's a clever aphorism though.
