In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
So, like a forgotten fire, a childhood can always flare up again within us. ~Gaston Bachelard.
To speak truly, few adult persons can see nature. Most persons do not see the sun. At least they have a very superficial seeing. The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and heart of the child. The lover of nature is he whose inward and outward senses are still truly adjusted to each other; who has retained the spirit of infancy even into the era of manhood. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Adults are obsolete children. ~Dr. Seuss
My childhood may be over, but that doesn’t mean playtime is. ~Ron Olson
