Cancellations & Studio Policies





It is another good reason for respecting children,

even standing in awe of them.

The long period of childhood is not just a time of fragile immaturity and vulnerability,

not just a phase of development to be 'got through' before the real show of humanity emerges on stage.

It is the time when the human brain can set to work

on language, 

on taste,

on poetry and music,

with centers at its disposal that may not be available later on in life.

If we did not have childhood,

and were able, somehow, to jump catlike from infancy to adulthood, 

I doubt very much that we would turn out human. 

~Louis Thomas, The Fragile Species
