And I thought that all those little kids are going to grow up someday. And all of those little kids are going to do the things that we do. And they will all kiss someone someday. But for now, sledding is enough. I think it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isn't. Stephen Chbosky
About This Quote

James Taylor sang about sledding in his song “Sleddin’ Away.” The song was released in 1981 and has since become a classic. Taylor sang about the fun of sledding and how it is something that can be done with friends whenever you want, regardless of how old you are. Taylor himself was only 9 years old when he wrote the song, but he had a great sense of humor about what was happening to him. Taylor also mentions that he thinks it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isn't.

This shows his innocence as a 9-year-old who is filled with wonder at what he is doing. Despite the fact that sledding is something that you do with friends, Taylor's view on growing up always seems to have an element of sadness. As you grow up, you realize that there are some things that are not quite the same as they were when you were very young.
