Ursula K. Le Guin on Redeeming the Imagination from the Commodification of Creativity
Ursula Le Guin on the creative life, by blogger Maria Popova >>>
"We are a wordy species. Words are the wings both intellect and imagination fly on. Music, dance, visual arts, crafts of all kinds, all are central to human development and well-being, and no art or skill is ever useless learning; but to train the mind to take off from immediate reality and return to it with new understanding and new strength, nothing quite equals poem and story."
