I love the phrase he used: "The lost key to the kingdom of childhood, which is also the key to the secret garden of adulthood." There is rich imagery and meaning tucked away behind those phrases. It seems to me that creative power is the key. Creative power is the unrestricted imagination and creative flow that is channeled by children, not just at play, but in how they face the world at large. Adults have a tendancy to call it "thinking outside the box" but the first word is the problem: thinking merely gets in the way of creative power.
