John Gutmann, Chinese Kids at Lunch Counter, San Francisco, 1938
“In this modern world where activity is stressed almost to the point of mania, quietness as a childhood need is too often overlooked.
Yet a child's need for quietness is the same today as it has always been--it may even be greater--for quietness is an essential part of
all awareness. In quiet times and sleepy times a child can dwell in thoughts of his own, and in songs and stories of his own.”
Margaret Wise Brown
