Sir Ken Robinson:
As human being we create our own lives. We create our own realties. We compose our lives. And we can recompose them. We can recreate them. We can see things differently. We can choose to see it differently. We can see it this way or we can see it that way. Often the most dreary circumstances can be transformed, not by the circumstances changing, but by our attitude for the circumstance changing, and that in due course might change the circumstances.
…that in itself is perhaps the ultimate creative act. Not necessarily to create something. Not to be a reactive entity, but to create your own life.
