I would still plant my apple tree

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.

Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.
~ Pablo Picasso 

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.
~ Dr. Seuss

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
~ Oscar Wilde

The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a room packed with archaic furniture. You must get the old furniture of what you know, think, and believe out before anything new can get in. Make an empty space in any corner of your mind, and creativity will instantly fill it.

~ Dee Hock

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.

~ Henry David Thoreau

Be what you are. This is the first step toward becoming better than you are.

~ Julius Charles Hare

Education is not filling a bucket but lighting a fire.

~ W.B. Yeats
