Live for Being Creative
"Finally, we should live for being creative. What do I mean by creative? I mean trying to change this universe in which we find ourselves placed—trying to add good things to it, if possible. The universe, in the state in which we find it when we wake up to consciousness, is obviously imperfect and unsatisfactory."
- Arnold Toynbee. Seek Love, Creation, and Understanding in Constructing a Life Philosophy: Opposing Viewpoints, 2002. Excerpted from Surviving the Future, 1971.
