I loved the feature “Toying with ideas – Philosophers on children” in the latest issue of Kidswear Magazine. A brillant compilation of  quotes on education and childhood by Nietsche, Hannah Arendt, Jean-Jacques Rousseau and other famous thinkers. This one, by Arthur Schopenhauer, stayed with me : “The basis of their joy is, however, that in childhood, our whole being lies much more in knowing rather than in wanting”. I thought that these portrait by photojournalist Alison Wright were a good illustration of the subject.
