As a philosophy teacher to grade-school students, Jana Mohr Lone is no stranger to getting her mind blown.

For the last 20 years or so, Mohr Lone has been the director of the University of Washington Center for Philosophy for Children.

Though her students still have most of their baby teeth, Mohr Lone says a lack of life experience hardly deters them from reflecting on life’s big mysteries: happiness, existence, knowledge, death.

Over the years, some quotes have really stuck with her. Here a select group she shared with Business Insider that are particularly profound.
