  • Creativity, in education, is as important as literacy, and should be treated with the same status. (SKR)
    If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.
    By the time children become adults, they have become frightened of being wrong.
    In our education systems, mistakes are the worst things you can make.
    We are educating people out of their creative capacities.
    Picasso once said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up.
    We don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it, or rather, we are educated out of it.
