"we often hear grown-up people complaining of having to hang about a railway station and wait for a train. did you ever hear a small boy complain of having to hang about a railway station and wait for a train? no; for to him to be inside a railway station is to be inside a cavern of wonder and a palace of poetical pleasures. because to him the red light and the green light on the signal are like a new sun and a new moon. because to him when the wooden arm of the signal falls down suddenly, it is as if a great king had thrown down his staff as a signal and started a shrieking tournament of trains. their meditations may be full of rich and fruitful things...but in the case of all such annoyances, as i have said, everything depends upon the emotional point of view. you can safely apply the test to almost every one of the things that are currently talked of as the typical nuisance of daily life."
- G.K. Chesterton.
