"My father was everything to me. Immersed in work as he was, he always spared that daily half-hour. Once my father showed me a very old album full of most exciting pen and ink sketches of an imaginary city called Mopsopolis, inhabited by Mopses. He showed it to me in secret, and I was thrilled to have him share his own childhood secrets with me." ~ Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna of Russia ~
