child is a seed

I read a really catching quote yesterday from one of his speech in TOI (28th Aug)

A child is clay waiting to be molded by parents and teachers. He is a seed which can grow into a tree. But if you give a potter this seed, you will get a Bonsai.

what i was implying was that the potter’s creation might look attractive… but as a bonsai he is curtailing the growth of the great tree with humongous potential…

a bad parent/teacher can do some irreversible damage
