Hanggang sa matutosiyang lumakad at maglikot, tumuklas at magtanong, at mangatwiran. Hanggang salumaki siya at maging ganap na mamamayan ng kanyang bansa. Pero ang may-ari ngkamay na nag-uugoy ng kanyang duyan ay mamamayan din ng kanyang bayan. Hindisiya dapat manatili lang sa maliit na silid sapagkat nananahan din siya sa daigdig. Angkanyang mga kamay ay hindi lang para sa pag-uugoy ng duyan, kundi para dintumulong magtawid sa bangka ng pagbabago”.Prepared by:Divine Heidi G.
