Hank Green, one-half of the famous VlogBrothers duo, recently proposed that he believes that curiosity is the greatest human quality. You can hear his argument here:
His brother John, the incredible author of The Fault in Our Stars, responded by saying that he thought cooperation might be a better response.
I’d like to submit my own idea, for your consideration and dissection. Could the greatest human quality possibly be creativity?
We can live without it, yes. But would anyone want to? *shudders*
I think of the quote where C.S. Lewis says that friendship, philosophy, and art have no survival value– but that they give value to survival.
Without creativity, life would be dull, boring, dreary, monotonous. What would we look forward to?
I’d like to hear your thoughts.
