Victor Klemperer, from his New Year's day 1942 diary entry, in volume 2 of I Shall Bear Witness, at 3 (1999):
It is said children still have a sense of wonder, later one becomes blunted. -- Nonsense. A child takes things for granted, and most people get no further; only an oldperson, who thinks, is aware of the wondrous.
