Quote of the Day (Henry James, on the Perceptions of Small Children)

“Small children have many more perceptions than they have terms to translate them; their vision is at any moment much richer, their apprehension even constantly stronger, than their prompt, their at all producible, vocabulary.” —Henry James, Preface to “New York Edition” of What Maisie Knew (1908)
