''[...] you see, children who cannot talk yet, can understand the language of fowls and ducks right well, and cats and dogs speak to them quite as plainly as Father and Mother can do; but it's only when the children are very little, and then, even Grandfather's stick will become a perfect horse to them, and can neigh, and, in their eyes, is furnished with head and legs and tail.
With some children this period ends later than with others, and of such we are accustomed to say that they are very backward, and that they have remained children a long time. People are in habit of saying many strange things''.
Hans Christian Andersen ''The Ice Maiden''
