Korney Chukovsky, a happy worker

Chukovsky Poems part of our lives, when we are just beginning to understand the meaning of words, and come back when we have time to raise their children. "Boldly Buzzing Fly" and "Barmalej" lie at the basis of Russian culture, rallying her media better than any state or national idea. However, the merit of Chukovsky not only that: his poetry, children's form and meaning, a bizarre way reflect the adult world, and in this magic mirror we can discern any of their traits, which do not know or have forgotten long ago.

Expelled from school, Chukovskij teenager was forced to earn a living. However, this did not make him unhappy: even then he was able to enjoy any job. The penalty for it could be only idleness. Chukovsky was loved by all: meeting in the house of the writer in Kuokkala, even old enemies forget their animosity out of respect for the host. Like no one else he could turn the holidays into a boring routine, "Crocodile" came up with the train to comfort a sick son, and his handwritten anthology "Chukokkala" made an exciting game for several generations of writers and artists ...

Understanding the value of each moment made him fearless: he was the only Soviet writer, who congratulated the disgraced Boris Pasternak's being awarded the Nobel Prize, and was not afraid to support Solzhenitsyn in the years of persecution. From the same source - the spontaneity and freshness of his vision of the world, which he so generously shared with his contemporaries, and with us - descendants.

The keys to understanding the

Be enthusiastic

"The desire for innovation, to overcome Touch moldy ideas inherent strongly to anyone who enthusiastically working in any field of knowledge was. In it lies the festive joy for us to work, her greatest charm, its seductiveness. " Introducing the element of creativity in any daily deal, fantasizing and finding new ways to bypass trampled route, we can not only overcome the routine of life, but also to turn any work into a fascinating adventure.

to feel and comprehend all

The abundance of impressions prevents us to fully perceive each of them separately. "Each of us, city people are now going through in one day as much as any other man of the last century would be enough for a lifetime of experiences ... more, but each of them as if Shorten". That is why any impression, no matter how fleeting it may be necessary to understand and to feel, at least for a few moments focusing on it all their intellectual and emotional strength - the only way we can maintain a sense of authenticity and significance of what is happening to us here and now.

Learning from children

"Happiness - a natural state of mind, not yet knowing neither about the threat of imminent death or of painful hardships and vexation of life." Communicating with children, getting into their secret world, truly and deeply empathizing with their joys and sorrows, sensitively capturing their needs and desires, we can regain the children's joy of life. And then, "at times when ought to whine and complain, suddenly jump out of bed with a mad sense of joy, as if you are a five-year boy, who gave a whistle ... You walk down the street and pointless enjoying everything that you see - signs, trams, sparrows, - ready to kiss each counter. "

To be able to leave

Experiencing the pain of loss, we will either focus on their grief, which seems to us a unique and incurable, or persecuted away sad thoughts, trying to quickly forget about the loss has befallen us. However, according to Chukovsky, neither the one nor the other way does not lead us to the desired goal. "I learned a" parting science "and realized that the main thing in this science - not evasion from grief, not desertion, not an escape from the sweet gone, and no fault in the mountain, which can not be helped, but the expansion of the heart, love - compassion - compassion to live ".
