Thursday's Thought


"Every creative person sets up vital currents in life that enrich the world. He has subconsciously accepted life as a vital, joyous experience and his consciousness seeks out the unusual. He wants fresh ideas in his mind. He chooses to keep his world flexible and his viewpoints expanding. He is clear in his certainty of good. . . The entire area of both his conscious and subconscious mind is alive with the present and creatively anticipating the future."

- Raymond Charles Barker, 1957
