My daughter began to worry about life when she was just 2-1/2 years old. One day I took her for a walk to a primary school and we sat in the playground. She looked longingly at a classroom and asked me, “Mom, can I go to school too?” 
女兒兩歲半就開始有了生之煩惱。那天我帶她到一家小學校去散步。我們坐在操場上,她滿眼艷羨地盯著小學校的教室問我:「媽媽,我能去那裡上學嗎?」「
“No, you are too small,” I said. 
「不行啊,你還太小了。」
She was silent for a while, then with a deep sigh, she said, “Mom, when will I EVER be taller?” She emphasized the word “ever” with such force, as if she had been bothered by this problem for a long time.
女兒沉默良久,突然長嘆一聲道:「媽媽,我為什麼老--也長不高?」她將「老」字拉得好長,似乎已為這個問題苦惱了很久很久。
I was lost for words as I looked into her eyes, pondering silently whether she was actually some sort of a reincarnated philosopher. At last, I answered her in a very non-philosophical way. “Eat more, and then you will gradually grow taller.”
我無言地望著她,開始想她是不是一個哲學家轉世。想了半天我才以一個特別不哲學的方式回答了她的問題:「你多吃點兒飯,慢慢地就長高了。」
