The First Steps

Yesterday my kids were watching Turtle Tale Movie. And I found some lines so beautiful, and they struck me. This was a scene where the newly hatched turtle was having difficulty going up from the hole to the shore. The grandpa turtle gave him a nudge. The conversation goes:

Sammy:          “The first steps are the hardest.”

Baby Turtle:     “What exactly am I suppose to do?”

Sammy:            “One flipper before the other.”
