Days [ ) Carousel | J.D. Salinger, 1949


Tibor Csörgeő, Carousel, 1930s

“Then the carousel started, and I watched her go round and round…
All the kids tried to grap for the gold ring, and so was old Phoebe, and I was
sort of afraid she’s fall off the goddam horse, but I didn’t say or do anything.
The thing with kids is, if they want to grab for the gold ring, you have to let
them do it, and not say anything. If they fall off, they fall off, but it is bad
to say anything to them.”

J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, 1951
