As the twig is bent, so the tree will grow" says an old proverb. Children born and brought up in families which have some strongly marked moral weaknesses nearly always grow up with those moral weaknesses in them. Even in the case of a tree it is possible for us to tell beforehand how the tree will grow. If the young plant is strong and straight we can say that it will develop into a strong and straight tree. On the other hand, children brought up in homes where the influences are healthy, nearly always grow up into men and women of strong character

In Reply to: As the twig bends so bends the tree posted by Victoria S Dennis on July 04, 2009 at 22:59: : : Does anyone know the derivation of the phrase "as the twig bends so bends the tree"? : It's just an old proverb. The idea has been expressed in various ways for nearly five hundred years. There's no substantive difference there, and no doubt old proverbs get bent all the time. I doubt if this old proverb began as one of Pope's numerous epigrams, and I doubt if one can rule that one particular form is definitive, barring certain knowledge of the original author. Still, I like this particular wording.

These wild children, when discovered, have had varying degrees of success in learning to act like humans again. 1 – Marina Chapman – woman raised by monkeys. Kidnapped from her family at a young age, abandoned in the perilous Colombian jungle, befriended by a troop of reticent primates, and now, decades later, revealed in a best-selling memoir – Marina’s story stands as a radical case of adaptation and survival. They don’t really love you.

What a treat, finding this book. Raised on a farm in West Boxford, Massachusetts, the author paints a delightful picture of small-town New England culture.
A tomboy, she helps with the haying, and roams freely in the country. The vignettes bring vivid scenes of wash day, country doctor's visit, the winter's food stored in the cellar, visits to the seaside, the 4th of July parade, and school recitals. She evokes the tastes of our past with descriptions of homemade bread, picking blueberries, and churning ice cream.
Originally written as newspaper columns, each 1-2 page segment sums up some aspect of life in that simpler time. Placed in sequence they form a picture of New England days following the seasons.
