    Mary Wollstonecraft (1759–1797)

    Make-believe is the avenue to much of the young child’s early understanding. He sorts out impressions and tries out ideas that are foundational to his later realistic comprehension. This private world sometimes is a quiet, solitary

    For standing still means death, and life is moving on,
    Moving on towards death. But sometimes standing still is also life.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
