Why do we have this desire to tease the innocent? Is it envy?
Life is not how we lead it. It is how children are born to lead it.
You either keep your childhood innocence or you rot!

To vice, innocence must always seem only a superior kind of chicanery.
Then cherish pity, lest you drive an angel from your door.
Innocence is the most intelligent admission of stupidity.
I don’t want there to be bad stories and me not know them.
