boredom feeds your imagination

“…we also live in a world where every minute is filled with television, computer game and other distractions.  There is no time to be bored any more and that means our imaginations are beginning not to work as well as they could. People whose imaginations have withered can be rather dangerous folk, because they cannot understand how other people think or feel, and they tend walk safe and well worn roads, rather than exploring where new ideas might lead them. They miss the magic. Without imagination, the world becomes a very dull place.”
