Children

A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
- Campbell, Beatrix

There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself.

Spolin, Viola

Ruskin, John
