When my fellow X-Men and I are not trying to save the world from catastrophe, I am teacher of History, Botany, and Horticulture. I thought this quote seemed an appropriate addition on the subject of creativity.

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." Albert Einstein

That is a great quote @Ororo Munroe. I'm sure you're a great teacher.
Here is one of my favorites.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge in limited to what we know and an understand, while imagination embraces the whole world, and all there will ever be to know and understand."
Albert Einstein

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles; or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and blood; who strives valiantly, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows the high triumph of achievement, and who, at the worst, if he he fails, fails at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

The Man in the Arena, an excerpt from a speech by Theodore Roosevelt,
at the Sarbonne, Paris, France, April 23, 1910

Sometimes we are so focused on the treasure we are seeking, that we fail to see the one right in front of us
Joe Kerr wrote on Patty's profile.
Is it weird that when someone said "things that glitter" my first thought was you?
At times, when we're so focused on 'who' we are, we forget 'where' we are.

  • Yul B. Sorry Yul B. Sorry:
    I know what your going to say: why stealing? Well l was force into this way of life due to everything money and not choosing to be poor and in a homeless shetler. My family and friends have abandoned me. And so l saw Carmen on tv. Her superior stealing skills and how she gets away from ACME. I wanted to be just like her to escape the careless outside world and steal and get away with it. I want to join her crew of VILE Henchmen. I know them all. Double Trouble, Vic The Slick, Eartha Brute, Patty Larceny.......
