Young Philosopher

Yesterday I was talking with my nephew who is just 8 years and old lives abroad. I asked him a random question what is life?

Life is when you feel happy you smile and when you feel sorrow you cry.

The wise donkey

It’s not a usual question for such young age and he even didn’t understand the question. Then I tried to explain him the question and he told me that he doesn’t know the answer. I told him life is when you feel happy you smile and when you feel sorrow you cry. He just shook his head.

Then I asked him the questions separately. He started counting his finger and answered me without any hesitation.

When do you feel happy?

  • when I do something good
  • when I come to my home and talk
  • when someone plays with me
  • when I am near to a sea

When do you feel sorrow?

  • if someone beat me
  • if someone kick me
  • if someone tell me a bad thing
  • find myself in a bad place
  • find myself in a war

I don’t know when children start building their own universe. Often I found their thought process much better than the adult.
