Maurice Sendak passed away this morning from complications following a recent stroke. Whether you loved his work, or hated it, Sendak is an inspiration to all of us cynics. I highly suggest you take a look at his interview with Stephen Colbert. In the interview he has some absolutely amazing quotes, like this one on E-Books:
Fuck them is what I say, I hate those e-books. They can not be the future… they may well be… I will be dead, I won’t give a shit!
We will never forget you and your ability to tell stories that show the darker side of a child’s mind.
