3 Nephi 26:14, 16

"And it came to pass that he did teach and minister unto the children of the multitude of whom hath been spoken, and he did loose their tongues, and they did speak unto their fathers great and marvelous things, even greater than he had revealed unto the people; and he loosed their tongues that they could utter.
Behold, it came to pass on the morrow that the multitude gathered themselves together, and they both saw and heard these children; yea, even babes did open their mouths and utter marvelous things; and the things which they did utter were forbidden that there should not any man write them."
3 Nephi 26:14, 16

These scriptures have always fascinated me.  Children are an amazing thing, and it is so interesting to think that, instead of not having anything to say except "I'm hungry" or "I'm uncomfortable" that they have *everything* to say... that, if they had their tongues loosed that they could tell us all about God and the universe.  The whole veil-being-drawn-over-our-premortal-memories thing bugs me.  :)  I want to be able to know who I was, and how it relates to who I am... I want to understand everything. :)  Of course, I have learned a little patience in that respect... but here are all of these people, and babies are telling them all about the premortal world, and unimaginable things... things so cool they weren't allowed to write about them. :)  Amazing.  And maybe we shouldn't ever assume that children are ignorant.  They probably know a lot more than we think... there are so many things in this life that are so much cooler than they seem... including ourselves probably most of the time.  There is that Godly spirit inside us all, that communicates with God so easily... if we can just relax and let our spiritual side out.  Let's listen to God.  And also to children whenever we have a chance... maybe we'll learn something. :)
