[…] it is not our actual childhood that defines us as human beings, but the way we have interpreted what happened. The movement between child and adult is a tidal ocean that never stills. Childhood is a thing that is never over, we constantly reinterpret it as we move through our lives. Every stage of maturity seems to broaden the period we think of ourselves as children, and reduce the time we have spent as adults. That child that we both love and hate never leaves us just as the promise of all that we might possibly do or be never leaves us when we are children.
