Quote of the Day (Ursula Le Guin, on the Imagination as a Means of Becoming Human)

“Imagination is not a means of making money. It has no place in the vocabulary of profit making. It is not a weapon, though all weapons originate from it, and the use, or nonuse, of all weapons depends on it, as with all tools and their uses.  The imagination is a fundamental way of thinking, an essential means of becoming and remaining human. It is a tool of the mind.”—Science-fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin, The Wave in the Mind: Talks and Essays on the Writer, the Reader, and the Imagination (2004)
