The center of Western culture is Greece, and we have never lost our ties with the architectural concepts of that ancient civilization.
Stephen Gardiner

But, ancient Greece and ancient Rome – people did not happen to believe that creativity came from human beings back then, OK? People believed that creativity was this divine attendant spirit that came to human beings from some distant and unknowable source, for distant and unknowable reasons.
Elizabeth Gilbert

In Greece wise men speak and fools decide.
George Santayana

Playground

February 2, 2011

 

 

It is the child in man that is the source of his uniqueness and creativeness, and the playground is the optimal milieu for the unfolding of his capacities and talents.
Eric Hoffer

 My playground was the theatre. I’d sit and watch my mother pretend for a living. As a young girl, that’s pretty seductive.
Gwyneth Paltrow

 The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

 Writing is very much a playground – an artistic playground. It’s the most fun thing I do.
Shania Twain

 I must apologise because I know all writers have memories of being on the outer because it’s the children on the side of the playground who become the dangerous writers.
Thomas Keneally

I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides homework.
Lily Tomlin

Being a writer is like having homework every night for the rest of your life.
Lawrence Kasdan

For me, being a writer was never a choice. I was born one. All through my childhood I wrote short stories and stuffed them in drawers. I wrote on everything. I didn’t do my homework so I could write.
Laura Hillenbrand

Home computers are being called upon to perform many new functions, including the consumption of homework formerly eaten by the dog.
Doug Larson
