“When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man, I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown-up.”
-C.S. Lewis from his essay On Three Ways of Writing for Children
Thank you to Gretchen Rubin of the Happiness Project for introducing me to this quote earlier this week.
