This one started a lively discussion on facebook:

Shakespeare didn’t work stoned. Art doesn’t escape reality, it embraces it. Creative people must see better, not worse, and bluntly confront what they see. They don’t use warped lenses, they must see with exceptional clarity. They see below surfaces and through cultural haze. Imagination isn’t the ability to create images from nothing, it’s the ability to understand what one sees and communicate what one understands.
