"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 makde 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."
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
