Life Under the Apple Tree

Thinking Out Loud


Everyone is an artist when it comes to creating his or her own life. The only lasting knowledge is self-knowledge — what we learn in our own way, in our own time, and for our own reasons.

“A person’s freedom of learning is part of his freedom of thought, even more basic than his freedom of speech.” ~John Holt

Quotes on the importance of playing:

“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect, but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.” -C.G. Jung

“Nobody ever gave you a grade for learning how to play, how to ride a bicycle, or how to kiss.” ~Derrick Jensen

“People learn by playing, thinking and amazing themselves. They learn while they’re laughing at something surprising, and they learn while they’re wondering ‘What the heck is this?'” ~Sandra Dodd

“Life must be lived as play.” ~Plato
