„We think we understand the rules when we become adults but what we really experienced is a narrowing of the imagination.“

— David Lynch American filmmaker, television director, visual artist, musician and occasional actor 1946
Context: I love child things because there's so much mystery when you're a child. When you're a child, something as simple as a tree doesn't make sense. You see it in the distance and it looks small, but as you go closer, it seems to grow — you haven't got a handle on the rules when you're a child. We think we understand the rules when we become adults but what we really experienced is a narrowing of the imagination.
