M; Mom, the litter we put in the ocean, if we keep going at the same pace, will double by 2025. I think anyone who litters should go to jail for a year. It should be like the earth detects litter and sweeps it into a tubes that sends it to the police who tests the DNA and finds who littered.
Mom: That's horrible, but I don't know about going to jail. Do you think that's kind of harsh?
M: Mom, we are not just talking about the ocean. This affects everyone. If we kill fish, we effect the web of life. Then animals who only eat fish will start to die, then everything will be affected.

After being told he couldn't eat a cookie with an article referenced about effects of sugar:
You base my life on articles. You should go on your gut instinct. Articles are other people's opinion. You read and you read those parenting books, I know you do. And they tell you if we get mad, to be more strict with them and then when that happens, we get more mad. Then its harder for you guys and you don’t know what to do because you never trust your instincts. This is the truth.

They are running a free spa at school, I booked a massage for tomorrow. They just take invisible money. They aren't that professional though, because they don't really keep track of who has an appointment and when. And they shouldn't really call it a spa, because they don't have like cucumbers and lotion and stuff.
M: It's too bad life is so short.
Me: What made you say that?
M: I don't know, it just is.
Me: Most 8-year-olds are not thinking that.
M: (laughs) Yeah, I know. Well at least you are in a good place. I wonder what heaven is really like. Is it like souls floating around or just like life only really different?
About national testing at school:
"I mean they are talking like it's all fun and games. It's serious. It is nationwide, the information goes to the government and it represents OUR school and OUR 2nd grade and OUR class. They need to stop acting like it's not serious, they could get themselves fired! What if we do horrible and they think they aren't teaching us??"

M: I remember I used to be so sad on the way home from school everyday because I was thinking about what everyone else had. Like they would say, I have an Xbox 360 and I do this...I just wanted to have what they did. To be equally matched.
Me: Do you still feel that way?
M: No, I don't really care. I just want to live up to my own legacy.
