Momo by Micheal Ende

Updated: Jul 11, 2020

Sometimes you find beautiful surprises in a children's book. And that was what happened with this beautiful book.

I started reading out of curiosity and had the opportunity to enjoy the book.

While reading Momo's adventure, you have a reminder of how important is listening to people and spending time with the people we know.

Sometimes we get so involved in the daily hustle of our world that we forget all about what is really important.

"People never seemed to notice that, by saving time, they were losing something else. No one cared to admit that life was becoming ever poorer, bleaker and more monotonous. The ones who felt this most keenly were the children, because no one had time for them any more. But time is life itself, and life resides in the human heart. And the more people saved, the less they had." /Micheal Ende
“All the world's misfortunes stemmed from the countless untruths, both deliberate and unintentional, which people told because of haste or carelessness.” /Michael Ende
“All the games were selected for them by supervisors and had to have some useful, educational purpose. The children learned these new games but unlearned something else in the process: they forgot to be happy, how to take pleasure in little things and last, but not least, how to dream” /Michael Ende
