"You will find it to be true, I think, so long as you remain deeply involved with the processes of your own imagination - not as alternative to what seems to be the reality of outward observation, not even as supplement to positive action and acquisition, because that's not the way in which the imagination can serve you best. What it can do is to serve as a sort of no man's land between that foreground of system and dogma, of positive action, for which you have been trained, and that vast background of immense possibility, of negation, which you must constantly examine, and to which you must never forget to pay homage as the source from which all creative ideas come."
Thank you, Josh Cohen, for this quote from Glenn Gould.
