"Play is at its best when performed for its own sake, not for any purpose or achievement other than itself. Play is self-discovery in the here and now. It is spontaneous, yet has its own discipline. It is light, yet potentially passionate.
It is discovery, and it is enjoyment of one’s own and of others’ possibilities, capacities, and limitations. Most, if not all, great discoveries, even in science, have been the result of intense effort along with playful curiosity and joy of exploration on the part of the discoverer.”
