The stories of childhood...

"The stories of childhood 
leave an indelible impression, 
and their author 
always has a niche 
in the temple of memory 
from which the image
 is never cast out 
to be thrown on the rubbish heap 
of things that are outgrown and outlived." 

 ~ Howard Pyle

This quote is so true!  I've outgrown many things from my childhood, but never the stories. I still love all of the books that I loved back then.  They are a part of me, and have helped shape me into the person I've become.  One of my fondest hopes is that some day I will write a story that children will read and love and remember, even once they are grown.
