What We Do Naturally

Pliny the Elder (AD 23 – AD 79) writes that crying is the only thing humans are able to do naturally, from birth.

So far I have found nothing else we do from birth that hasn’t been learned. But I wonder if Pliny was referring to crying both for sadness and for joy.

Because today, at last, I am crying from an over abundance of peace and goodness.
