„Children are tough, though we tend to think of them as fragile. They have to be tough. Childhood is not easy.“

—  Maurice Sendak

As quoted in "The Paternal Pride of Maurice Sendak" by Bernard Holland, in The New York Times (8 November 1987) http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9B0DE6DC103CF93BA35752C1A961948260&scp=2&sq=Sendak+protecting&st=nyt
Contesto: Children are tough, though we tend to think of them as fragile. They have to be tough. Childhood is not easy. We sentimentalize children, but they know what's real and what's not. They understand metaphor and symbol. If children are different from us, they are more spontaneous. Grown-up lives have become overlaid with dross.

„Let the wild rumpus start!“

—  Maurice Sendak, libro Nel paese dei mostri selvaggi

Variante: "And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!"
Origine: Where the Wild Things Are (1963)

„Scares the bejesus out of people and makes them hate him. Because he's so [[good.]“

—  Maurice Sendak

NOW interview (2004)
Contesto: Herman Melville is a god. … I cherish what he did. He was a genius. Wrote Moby-Dick. Wrote Pierre. Wrote The Confidence-Man, wrote Billy Budd. … Oh, yes. Look at him. … Scares the bejesus out of people and makes them hate him. Because he's so good. ] Claggart has him killed in that book. Claggart has his [[eye on that boy. He will not tolerate such goodness, such blondeness, such blue eye. Goodness is scary. It's like you want to knock it. You want to hit it. Are we a country of beating down things? We love seeing people go down.

„I was talking about kids I knew and me.“

—  Maurice Sendak

On Where the Wild Things Are
NOW interview (2004)
Contesto: I was talking about kids I knew and me. A book, an American book, where the child actually daunts his mother and threatens her.
No way. No way. And then on top of that, she puts him in a room and denies him food. No way. Mamas never do that kinda thing. Kids never get pissed at their parents. Unheard of. And the worst offense, he comes home. She leaves food for him. And he's not punished. Not punished.
