“Children are tough, though we tend to think of them as fragile. They have to be tough. Childhood is not easy… If children are different from us, they are more spontaneous. Grown-up lives have become overlaid with dross.”
Maurice Sendak

“its those occasions in a childs life where he or she has to make the decisions all by themselves, without the help of an adult… it doesn’t mean their parent doesn’t love them, but at that moment they are caught… they use their primitive logic, which is all a kid has, to solve the moment… they do get through those moments”
Maurice Sendak

“people come on Sunday and wait to get fed, uncles and aunts… and they all say the same dumb things, ‘how big you are! how fat you’ve got!…you look so good we can eat you up!’ and in fact we knew they would. The only entertainment was watching their bloodshot eyes, how bad their teeth were…huge nose and the hair curling out of the nose, the weird mole on the side of the head”
Maurice Sendak

“These are difficult times for children. Children have to be brave to survive what the world does to them. And this world is scrungier and rougher and dangerouser than it ever was before.”
Maurice Sendak
