Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 3/9/09

// Jean Vanier English



Meal are Times for Laughter

A meal is supposed to be a place where you can laugh, even if you get a chunk of food in your face when somebody spits on you! That’s all part of the game. I am not saying that we shouldn’t teach good manners. That’s another thing. But to make the meal a place of pedagogy is crazy. If people are tense, they risk having constipation or diarrhea.

Jean Vanier in "Living Gently in a Violent World," p. 36
