Alicia Aspinwall: "There once was a little word named "Please," that lived in a small boy's mouth. Pleases live in everybody's mouth, though people often forget they are there. Now, all Pleases, to be kept strong and happy, should be taken out of the mouth very often, so they can get air. They are like little fish in a bowl, you know, that come popping up to the top of the water to breathe."
