“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”
Today I will offer a few quotations from writers from earlier eras about creativity, learning, and teaching.

These are the Middle English and the Modern English versions of this quotation from “The General Prologue” of The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer. This idea is of enormous importance to me, because I am both a teacher and a life-long student. All people should try to continue to learn throughout their lives and to teach someone else the wisdom they have amassed.
(Portrait of William Shakespeare, attributed to John Taylor
“Suit the action to the word, the
word to the action, with this special observance, that you
o’erstep not the modesty of of nature. For anything so over-
done is from the purpose of playing, whose end, both at
the first and now, was and is, to hold, as ’twere, the mirror
up to nature, to show virtue her own feature, scorn her
own image, and the very age and body of the time his
form and pressure.”
William Shakespeare (Hamlet Act 3. Scene2. lines 16-23)
Shakespeare speaks to the importance of representing life and humanity as it is and to examine the world in its complexities; it can also be an injunction for all creative efforts. I do not mean we should eliminate abstraction, metaphor, or altered forms, but that, at our core, we are creating art about humanity and our world.
Keep learning and keep sharing what you know.
But conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.”
