„Children do live in fantasy and reality; they move back and forth very easily in a way we no longer remember how to do.“

—  Maurice Sendak American illustrator and writer of children's books 1928 - 2012

As quoted in Questions to an Artist Who Is Also an Author : A Conversation between Maurice Sendak and Virginia Haviland (1972) by Virginia Haviland
Contesto: I believe there is no part of our lives, our adult as well as child life, when we're not fantasizing, but we prefer to relegate fantasy to children, as though it were some tomfoolery only fit for the immature minds of the young. Children do live in fantasy and reality; they move back and forth very easily in a way we no longer remember how to do.

—  Theodore Roszak American social historian, social critic, writer 1933 - 2011

The Gendered Atom: Reflections on the Sexual Psychology of Science (1999)
Contesto: Here, at the birth of modern science, is a fundamental insight. Our knowledge of nature Out There begins with knowledge of ourselves In Here. Until we have freed our minds and emotions of the hidden presuppositions that stand between us and the world, we can never be certain we are in touch with reality.

„When we describe a process, or make out an invoice, or photograph a tree, we create models; without them we would know nothing of reality and would be animals. Abstract pictures are fictive models, because they make visible a reality that we can neither see nor describe, but whose existence we can postulate.“

—  Gerhard Richter German visual artist, born 1932 1932
