The Value of Play

George over at Transit Notes put up a post about the value of play with quotes to remind us that play is essential to creativity and happiness.

Here are three of the quotes from his post:

"The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion.  He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both."
Buddha

"Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play." 
Heraclitus


"Play is the highest form of research."
"We are more ready to try the untried when what we do is inconsequential.  Hence the remarkable fact that many inventions had their birth as toys."
Albert Einstein

Thanks, George!
