they care not

"When I do come into contact with children, I find them a disconcertingly tough audience. They care not for blurb or kudos, literary allusion or postmodern antics. Instead, they study every inch of a thing and are bluntly honest about it." Shaun Tan

I honestly think everyone should print this post out, words and picture, and put it in their pocket and live by it.

Study every inch of a thing. Be honest. Care not for kudos and antics. Amen.
