"Then they betrayed their peculiarities by some chance remark which called forth a stare of surprise, followed by ridicule and a sharp scolding for their silliness, so that the poor little things shrunk back into themselves, and never ventured again to allude to their inner world."

- Sir Francis Galton, writing about the experiences of number form synaesthetes in the 1800s.
