“It is a joy to be hidden but disaster not to be found.”

“Here is a picture of a child establishing a private self that is not communicating, and at the same time wanting to communicate and to be found. It is a sophisticated game of hide-and-seek in which it is a joy to be hidden but disaster not to be found.”

― Donald Winnicott, The Maturational Processes and the Facilitating Environment: Studies in the Theory of Emotional Development
