There are heaps upon heaps of amazing people out there, & a lot of them say things worth pondering. This week we’ll take a look at a few quotes from Ursula K. Le Guin.
Born in 1929 & leaving this earth in 2018, author Ursula K. Le Guin won the National Book Award, the PEN-Malamud, the Hugo, the Nebula, the National Book Foundation Medal, & tons more. Many readers know her as a brilliant fantasy writer, though not all her work falls in that genre. To cast a tiny light into her thinking, here are four of her quotes:
“My imagination makes me human and makes me a fool; it gives me all the world and exiles me from it.”
“To light a candle is to cast a shadow.”
“The creative adult is the child who has survived.":
“The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.”
I’m hoping some of you might choose a quote from above & have something to say about it in the comments section.

I write for teens, narrate audio books, bake bread, play music, and ponder the wonder of words in a foggy little town on California's central coast.
