So naive

Lovely quote from an author on children's books:
"Story is the vehicle we use to make sense of our lives in a world that often defies logic."~Jim Trelease

Another quotation:
"Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty." (Bertrand Russell)

I feel like a common thread in a lot of the legends and stories we've read about is a foundation in fear, especially the stories about cannibalism.

Ha, one more by the same man:

"A stupid man's report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into somehting he can understand."
