The Joy of Repetition

"When the child has come to understand something it is not the end, but only the beginning. For now there comes the 'second stage' … the more important one, when the child goes on repeating the same exercise again and again for sheer love of it. When I have just been introduced to a person and I find him interesting and attractive, that is not the moment when I turn my back on him and go away!! Rather it is just then that I have the wish to stay in his company and enjoy it."
