The creative adult is the child who has survived.
Ursula K. Le Guin   Category:

The only questions that really matter are the ones you ask yourself.
Ursula K. Le Guin   Category:

The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty; not knowing what comes next.
Ursula K. Le Guin   Category:

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.
Ursula K. Le Guin   Category:

There are no right answers to wrong questions.
Ursula K. Le Guin   Category:

There's a good deal in common between the mind's eye and the TV screen, and though the TV set has all too often been the boobtube, it could be, it can be, the box of dreams.
Ursula K. Le Guin   Category:

To light a candle is to cast a shadow.
Ursula K. Le Guin   Category:

To oppose something is to maintain it.
Ursula K. Le Guin   Category:

We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.
