“If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.”
I have heard it said that it is our 20’s and 30’s when we are most creative, when we come up with most of our ideas, when we ask the new questions. Later in life is when we refine them, write about them, teach them.
I like how 12-year-old (!) Adora Svitak says in this TED Talk that the world needs more “childish thinking”… more unburdened free thought, more creativity, and more dreams of perfection.
