Words That Make Me Smile

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.  ~Theodore Geisel

The creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.  ~Frank Barron, Think, November-December 1962

There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.  ~Ansel Adams

Things are only impossible until they're not.  ~Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation

Trust that little voice in your head that says "Wouldn't it be interesting if..."  And then do it.  ~Duane Michals, "More Joy of Photography"

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.  ~Henry David Thoreau

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.  ~Albert Szent-Györgyi
