Jane Yolen on the reading and writing of fantasy

[Quoting Lewis Carroll:  Alice said:] "[O]ne can't believe impossible things."
 "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
[Yolen:]  "The reading of fantasy and the writing of it take that kind of practice, too."
from Twelve Impossible Things Before Breakfast by Jane Yolen
