Such a brilliant series

“I wonder why I was like that. I wonder what it was inside me that made me like that… and I can see even at fourteen and I was beginning to get more subdued and I was putting a lot more thought into what I was saying to a ridiculous degree… and probably when I was seven I… lived in a wonderful world where everything was sensation-dumb… I could be happy like this I could be miserable the next minute… and I didn’t have to plan for the future. I didn’t have to worry about having friends and all this money because everything was so mapped out for me.”

– Neil Hughes, 21 Up (1984)
