I like this quote. It was given to the writer Sean O’ Hagen by the psychologist and author Adam Phillips, when he asked him what would be the single thing that might make us more content in our ever accelerating culture…..
“We need to find the time to daydream and be bored, and to see that, too, as a part of our creativity. We need, as it were, to find the time to waste time without worrying about the consequences“.
(I came across it in Seans piece on My Bloody Valentine in todays Observer Music Monthly.)
