About children and dogs!

As I almost finished my packing... mostly of notes and books, my eyes fell on one of my favourite books during my M.Ph. (at Nashik)... Philosophical Investigations by Ludwig Wittgenstein. As I flipped the pages and glanced at some of the underlined text, the following sentence caught my attention:
A child has much to learn before it can pretend. A dog cannot be a hypocrite, but neither can it be sincere.

Wow! What a statement! No wonder people prefer to remain a child... to be able to be themselves, without pretensions and masks.
