Joaquin in a meaningful experience

A child only pours himself into a little funnel or into a little box when he's afraid of the world —when he's been defeated. But when a child is doing something he's passionately interested in, he grows like a tree —in all directions. This is how children learn, how children grow. They send down a taproot like a tree in dry soil. The tree may be stunted, but it sends out these roots, and suddenly one of these little taproots goes down and strikes a source of water. And the whole tree grows. — John Holt
