Maurice Sendak

There must be more to life than having everything.More Maurice Sendak [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I want to be alone and work until the day my heads hits the drawing table and I'm dead. Kaput. I feel very much like I want to be with my brother and sister again. They're nowhere. I know they're nowhere and they don't exist, but if nowhere means that's where they are, that's where I want to be.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In plain terms, a child is a complicated creature who can drive you crazy. There's a cruelty to childhood, there's an anger.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I think people should be given a test much like driver's tests as to whether they're capable of being parents! It's an art form. I talk a lot. And I think a lot. And I draw a lot. But never in a million years would I have been a parent. That's just work that's too hard.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Childhood is a tricky business. Usually, something goes wrong.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Most children - I know I did when I was a kid - fantasize another set of parents. Or fantasize no parents. They don't tell their real parents about that - you don't want to tell Mom and Dad. Kids lead a very private life. And I was a typical child, I think. I was a liar.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

As a kid, all I thought about was death. But you can't tell your parents that.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
When I did 'Bumble-ardy,' I was so intensely aware of death. Eugene, my friend and partner, was dying here in the house when I did 'Bumble-ardy'. I did 'Bumble-ardy' to save myself. I did not want to die with him. I wanted to live, as any human being does.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm not afraid of death.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The distinctions of fine art bore me to death.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
As a kid, all I thought about was death.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'd like to believe an accumulation of experience has made me a sort of a grown-up person, so I can have judgment and taste and whatever.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I don't need faith.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I hate those e-books. They can not be the future... they may well be... I will be dead.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I hate those e-books. They cannot be the future. They may well be.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Oh, I adored Mickey Mouse when I was a child. He was the emblem of happiness and funniness. You went to the movies then, you saw two movies and a short. When Mickey Mouse came on the screen and there was his big head, my sister said she had to hold onto me. I went berserk.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

My life in Brooklyn was in constant danger because of my bad health.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Do parents sit down and tell their kids everything? I don't know. I don't know. I've convinced myself - I hope I'm right - that children despair of you if you don't tell them the truth.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

My father could be very witty, even if the humor was always on the darker side of irony.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I mean, being a child was being a child, was being a creature without power, without pocket money, without escape routes of any kind. So I didn't want to be a child.More Maurice Sendak [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
