There are two lasting bequests we can give our children:  one is roots, the other is wings.”   —   Hodding Carter

(I have a great print of this quotation in my home.  It shows a stylized adult speaking to a child, while standing upon the roots of a large tree, whose trunk opens up to a canopy of various birds on the wing.  It’s not word for word the same as the above, but apparently there are a few recognized variants of this marvelous sentiment.)   —   YUR
