Childhood: The Fine Print

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
It is the eye of ignorance that assigns a fixed and unchangeable color to every object; beware of this stumbling block.
Paul Gauguin
Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination.
e.e. cummings
The function of the imagination is not to make strange things settled, so much as to make settled things strange.
G.K. Chesterton
