A Quote by Harry Allen Overstreet on belief, creativity, education, future, power, spirit, and value

I may safely predict that the education of the future will be inventive-minded. It will believe so profoundly in the high value of the inventive or creative spirit that it will set itself to develop that spirit by all means within its power.

A Quote by Gilbert Keith Chesterton on chess, creativity, danger, imagination, lies, logic, and poets

Poets do not go mad; but chess-players do. Mathematicians go mad, and cashiers; but creative artists very seldom. I am not, as will be seen, in any sense attacking logic: I only say that this danger does lie in logic, not in imagination.

Gilbert Chesterton (1874 - 1936)
