“Imagination Has No Age”


“Nobody goes “AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!” when they sing it. Maybe because it puts the life adventure in such clear and simple terms.  The small creature is alive and looks for adventure.  Here’s the drainpipe — a long tunnel going up toward some light.  The spider doesn’t even think about it — just goes. Disaster befalls it — rain, flood, powerful forces.  And the spider is knocked down and out beyond where it started.  Does the spider say, ‘To hell with that’?    No.    Sun comes out — clears things up — dries off the spider. And the small creature goes over to the drainpipe and looks up and thinks it really wants to know what is up there.”     (Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)



“Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?  Proving nature’s laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet.  Funny, it seems to by keeping its dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air.  Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared.”   (Tupac Shakur, The Rose That Grew from Concrete)



“If only the scientific experts could come up with something to get it out of our minds.  One cup of fixit fizzle that will lift the dirt from our lives, soften our hardness, protect our inner parts, improve our processing, reduce our yellowing and wrinkling, improve our natural color, and make us sweet and good.”     (Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)


“Laughter is timeless.  Imagination has no age.  And dreams are forever.”

 (Walt Disney Company)
