Most of the time, a kid doesn't think about what he's doing or why. This is the privilege of childhood.
The examined life is no picnic.
Clean up your own mess.
I don't think there is a hidden purpose to the universe that you have to puzzle out.

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life — learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world it is best to hold hands and stick together.
