"Given a tiny new human being, how can you know what encouragement to give? Is this a musician, painter, writier, mathematician, or zoologist who will do something magnificent in one of these areas, given the right beginning? The knowledge of what talents lie within the seed is hidden, but an atmosphere can be conducive to developing in many directions, until later one or another becomes obvious as some special talent. The environment in a family should be conducive to the commencement of natural creativity, as natural as breathing, eating, and sleeping."
--Edith Schaeffer, What Is a Family?
