During the spring 2009, my wife and myself visited a large and beautiful baroque castle in Germany from the Age of Enlightenment (Frederic II, Voltaire, Rousseau, etc.). Imagine huge rooms and exquisitely inspired baroque paintings and sculptures throughout. We were in awe.
While enjoying this we overheard a 6 year old German child asking her father (it sounds so special in German):
"Papa, why are the doors so big and the ceilings so high? Were the people who lived here taller than we are now?"
"Ach nein, mein Liebchen, vielleicht die Menschen waren... ""Oh no, my dear child, people were probably a little smaller, but they had 'v e r y' large souls!"
"What's a soul Papa?"
"Your soul is what you feel love with. With your soul you see beauty... you feel happiness!"
"Do I have a big soul, Papa?"
"Aber natürlich mein Liebchen!...""Of course, my dear little one!"
"Then you and Mommy have big souls too!"
