ACK! This is why #SYTYCD rouses me like nothing else on TV. Watching Dragon House Crew = pure joy. I can’t pick a favorite, so here’s all three.
First: Boris Penton.
Thank you Maurice Sendak. I’m glad you bothered to be born.
Your books are part of me.
I don’t believe in ‘children,’ I don’t believe in ‘childhood.’ I don’t believe in this demarcation: You mustn’t tell them this, you mustn’t tell them that. You can tell them anything you want. Just tell them if it’s true. If it’s true, you tell them. […] Why is my needle stuck in childhood? I don’t know. I don’t know why… I guess that’s where my heart is.
“I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more. … What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.”
