Warrior Of The Light Perception

"Warrior of the Light values a child's eyes because they are able to look at the world without bitterness. When he wants to find out if the person beside him is worthy of his trust, he tries to see him as a child would."

Warrior of the Light is a book written by Paulo Coelho, author of The Alchemist.

I downloaded this book and started reading it.

The very first few pages gave me the impression that although this book is full of wisdom but it actually depends on how a person interprets these wisdom words.

 Warrior of the Light talks about You looking at the world without bitterness. Bitterness arises from hatred and not out of Emotional Outbursts or even selfishness to a certain extent. A child does not laugh when he is crying and does not cry when he is actually happy and laughing and you can certainly not term these emotional reactions as "Bitterness". As he grows a little, he pretends to cry for selfish wants like some toys or food etc. He can pretend to cry but will very rarely pretend to laugh when he is actually crying. It is still not termed as "Bitterness".

My question is
1: What is bitterness
2 Where does a child learn bitterness from?

Who will you appreciate more?
1. A person who does not pretend and shows his good and bad
emotional out bursts which maybe acceptable to some and not
acceptable to some.
2. A person who pretends to be happy but actually bitter from
inside which comes out bursting all of a sudden.

Warrior Of The Light throws some light on these aspects but every one perceives it differently. The underlying difference is "Bitterness", "Pretension" and "Emotions".

I would like to invite people with their views.
