    'I showed my masterpiece to the grown-ups, and asked them whether the drawing frightened them.
    But they answered: "Frighten? Why should any one be frightened by a hat?"

     
    My drawing was not a picture of a hat.
    It was a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant.
     
    But since the grown-ups were not able to understand it, I made another drawing:
    I drew the inside of a boa constrictor, so that the grown-ups could see it clearly.
    They always need to have things explained...
     
    Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves,
    and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.'
