    This book is dedicated with love to Charlotte who continues to sustain my interest in language development through our many memorable and utterly enjoyable conversations and the countless stories that we share together.

    And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.

    And he said:

    Your children are not your children.

    They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

    They come through you but not from you,

    And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

    The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran

    (The above extract is from The Prophet originally published by William Heinemann Ltd.)
