The smaller the person, the less we worry about his dignity. Sometimes we even find the idea a little ludicrous as if smallness and inexperience were incompatible with anything so majestic as human dignity....Yet children have a great sense of their own dignity. They couldn't define what it is but they know when it has been violated.
