Ignore Everybody and 39 Other Keys to Creativity by Hugh MacLoed
Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with books on algebra etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the creative bug is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please.’ “
I love this quote. Mostly because I love my crayons and markers and paints and glues. I’ve been known to give grown-ups packs of markers on occasion. Someone gave a woman at work got a big box of Crayola crayons for Christmas and I thought she was going to have to fight to keep them. I guess a lot of people are envious of fresh boxes of crayons, or maybe that’s just were I work. Kinda of sad that they don’t just go out and buy them.
