the experience of joyful play is not something that must be sought on some mystical margin of existence; it can readily be found in the reality of ordinary life

yet within this experienced reality it constitutes a signal of transcendence, because its intrinsic intention points beyond itself

. . . all men have experienced the deathlessness of childhood and we may assume that, even if only once or twice, all men have experienced transcendent joy in adulthood
