Ender's Game chapter 1

Think about the quote and find a piece of wisdom or knowledge about life and human nature. 

" It was a lie, of course, that it wouldn't hurt a bit. But since adults always said it when it was going to hurt, he could count on that statement as an accurate prediction of the future"

Adults bend the truth to children for many reasons. Sometimes it is to protect kids and sometimes it is in their own (the adult's) interest. In any case, children quickly learn to take this statement loosely. Experience teaches children that life does hurt, especially when adults tell them it will not.
