The Door in the Wall - Newbery Medal Original Bookcover

"It is really true, as we used to tell our children, "When you come to a stone wall, if you look far enough, you will find a door in it."

"...We discovered as others have how little basic differences there is; that it is only in the non-essentials that we differ; what we have for breakfast, and how we greet our parents, or a different way of expressing the same homely truths, those bits of wisdom that have grown out of ages of experience. ..."
