“Love is not the admiration of perfection, but the acceptance of an imperfect person with all his imperfections, because loving and accepting him makes us better and stronger.”
-Harold S. Kushner, When Bad Things Happen to Good People (147).
This is what it means to create: not to make something out of nothing, but to make order out of chaos. A creative scientist or historian does not make up facts but orders facts; he sees connections between them rather than seeing them as random data.
A creative writer does not make up new words but arranges familiar words in patterns which say something fresh to us.
-Harold S. Kushner, When Bad Things Happen to Good People (51, 52).
Thanks to Confessions of an Irish Procrastinator for nominating me for quotes. I only like to share one, myself; but thanks for shouting out. 🙂
