“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
