You must understand…

Henri Matisse; La danse (second version) , oil on canvas, 260 x 391 cm  Henri Matisse – State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia

You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it.

That is why you must read,

that is why you must look at the skies,

that is why you must sing,

and dance,

and write poems,

and suffer,

and understand; for all that is life.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Debes de comprender la vida entera, no solamente una pequeña parte de esta.

Es por ello que debes de leer,

es por ello que debes de mirar al cielo,

es por ello que debes de cantar,

y bailar,

y escribir poemas,

y sufrir,

y comprender; porque todo esto es la vida.

Jiddu Krishnamurti


This text I can refer it to childhood and the strong call to allow children to learn life with all their senses and all their might. It is the only way that we can ensure a better future.


Este texto lo relaciono con la infancia y la necesidad imperiosa de permitir a los niños que aprendan la vida con todos sus sentidos y todas sus fuerzas. Solo así podremos asegurarnos un futuro mejor.
