no childish illusions for children

Children don’t read to find their identity, to free themselves from guilt, to quench the thirst for rebellion or to get rid of alienation.  They have no use for psychology…. They still believe in God, the family, 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 writer to redeem humanity, but leave to adults such childish illusions.  ~Isaac Bashevis Singer
