Inspiration from Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak photo from here.

"We don't want children to suffer. But what do we do about the fact that they do? The trick is to turn that into art."
- Maurice Sendak

From an interview with Ramin Setoodeh in Newsweek, October 8, 2009, as quoted on page 36 of Wild Things: Acts of Mischief in Children's Literature by Betsy Bird, Julie Danielson and Peter D. Sieruta, Candlewick Press, Massachusetts, 2014.

Interesting quote. Inspiring, but also gives us something to think about.
