Out of the Mouths of Babes

Today in the car:

Drew: "Educational tv is good for you."
Me: "Well, in moderation."
Drew: "What does moderation mean?"
Me: "Not too much or too little. Even good things can be bad if there's too much of them."
Drew: "Like power. Too much power can be a bad thing. Just like Napolean and Julius Caeser - they were good men, but they got too much power and they turned bad."

Six year olds who understand "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" scare me.
