When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life. ~John Lennon

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

I told them they didn't understand life.

Definitely a Montessori kid.
