Voices: Putting Away Childish Things

When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up. — C. S. Lewis [1]

I think back to this quote every time I want to revisit The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
