no expectations

Children have no use for psychology. They detest sociology. They still believe in God, angels, devils, witches, goblins, logic, clarity, punctuation, and other such obsolete stuff. When a book is boring, they yawn openly. They don't expect their writers to redeem humanity, but leave to adults such childish allusions.
- Isaac Bashevis Singer (1902-1991) author & storyteller, winner of 1978 Nobel in literature

Such a nice one. It makes all the stress of global warming, wars, poverty fade for a little respite.

Children are our gold!
