“Children are really the ancients among us. It is we, the older people, who bear the stamp of temporariness, the impress of a brief, particular period: we, with our clothes of a particular fashion, our manners dictated by the conventions of our generation, our heads packed full of the prejudices, called information, peculiar to the particular time at which we were educated.”
Sarban, Ringstones and Other Curious Tales

“There is a power in the emptiness of the hills; and it's a hostile power. One old tin-can lying on the ground would make all the difference. But there was no tin-can: what we could see was all so powerfully un-human as to be able to erase our knowledge of its narrow limits.”
Sarban, Ringstones and Other Curious Tales
