Quote

I believe the power of observation in numbers of very young children to be quite wonderful for its closeness and accuracy. Indeed, I think that most grown men who are remarkable in this respect, may with greater propriety be said not to have lost the faculty, than to have acquired it.
Charles Dickens

German
Ich glaube, dass die Beobachtungsgabe vieler sehr junger Kinder wegen ihrer Nähe und Genauigkeit etwas sehr Wunderbares ist. Wahrhaftig denke ich, dass man von den meisten Erwachsenen, die in dieser Hinsicht bemerkenswert sind, weniger sagen kann, dass sie diese Fähigkeit erworben, als vielmehr, dass sie sie nicht verloren haben.”
Charles Dickens
