I believe that dreams - day dreams, you know, with your eyes wide
open and your brain machinery whizzing - are likely to lead to the
betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the
imaginative man or woman most apt to create, invent, and therefore
to foster civilization. A prominent educator tells me that fairy tales
are of untold value in developing imagination in the young.
I believe it.
- L. Frank Baum
