Philosophy Of Toys

Christmas morningWere I a philosopher, I should write a philosophy of toys, showing that nothing else in life need to be taken seriously, and that Christmas Day in the company of children is one of the few occasions on which men become entirely alive.

-- Robert Lynd (1879-1949), British writer, The Peal of Bells, Chapter XVI "The Christmas Present" (1925)
