Sample text:

" A pearl reminds me of something, Daniel. You mentioned how some of the boys at school teased you, and how you wished you were taller so they wouldn't do that." Daniel looked sad as he nodded his head in agreement. Grandpa continued," The trial you're going through in school is like how a clam feels with a piece of sand stuck in its mouth. It feels irritated and uncomfortable. In general, it's annoyed, and if clams could be mad it might even get angry. But think about what is produced inside the clam because of that kernel of sand. Yes, a magnificent pearl."
