When you listen to a little kid talk about something, there's one thing that always rings true:  Children are brutally honest. Children also have a pure, untarnished outlook on things.  The things they say can be very profound.

Check out some of these brilliant phrases posted on Reddit yesterday.

"My little sister gave me a juice box as I was packing to move out and said, 'No one is really a grown up. They just act old because they have to.'"

"I told a kid he just said a made-up word.  He said, 'All words are made-up at first.'"

"When my uncle was dying, his son asked, 'Does everyone die?'  We told him, 'Eventually, yes.'  He said, nonchalantly, 'Well if we're all going to die, why are we so afraid of it?'"

"My friend's kid explained the Incredible Hulk to me.  'He's a big green monster and when he needs to get things done, he turns into a scientist.'  That blew my mind."

"At my little cousin's birthday, someone said to him, 'You're getting old.'  He replied, 'I've been getting old since I was born.'"

"An old man had just lost his wife, and the little boy who lived next door went and sat on his lap.  When I asked what he said to the man, the kid said, 'Nothing, I just helped him cry.'"

Has your kid said anyting that blew your mind?
