"The great instrument of moral good is imagination"

"Fantasy is the oldest kind of fiction, and though it's forever finding new forms, it doesn't change in essence. Even through the flood of trite trilogies and formula fantasoids of the last twenty years, the real stuff keeps being written, published, and read. Not even capitalism can kill the imagination.
"Fantasy is the language of the inner self. I will claim no more for fantasy than to say I personally find it the appropriate language in which to tell stories to children - and others. But I say that with some confidence, having behind me the authority of a very great poet, who put it much more boldly. 'The great instrument of moral good,' Shelly said, 'is imagination.' "
Ursula K. Le Guin (via Myth & Moor).
