‘These joys give us a reprieve from etiquette, let us shelve our inhibitions, make it possible for our self-concious, rule-observing selves to be tucked away. For a few blessed moments, we’re streaming, uncorked ids’ 

[When around children, adults have] ‘a chance to contemplate – and perhaps reconsider – why the world around them is what it is’ 

‘Children remind us just how much of our implicit knowledge, which hums inaudibly in the background all day long, is the stuff we once had to learn’ 

– All Joy and No Fun, Jennifer Senior
