The kid in you?

"The conventional wisdom might have it backward. Rather than childhood experiences causing us to be who we are, who we are causes our childhood experiences."
-Steven Pinker, in Curious Minds, page 84.

[While I may not fully agree, all too often the contribution of genetics is overlooked and environmental factors given unrealistic sway. This quotation is to remind that 'nurture' is what releases (and influences) one's 'nature.']
