Engrave this Quote The ages of seven to eleven is a huge chunk of life, full of dulling and forgetting. It is fabled that we slowly lose the gift of speech with animals, that birds no longer visit our windowsills to converse. As our eyes grow accustomed to sight they armour themselves against wonder.
-Leonard Cohen, The Favorite Game, Bk 1, Ch. 17 Tell a Friend
