Ideas shape us. Be they in literature or in song, in theatre or in film, by way of political ideology or philosophical inquiry. They give us the power and the means to overcome difficulty. Ideas allow us to create. Ideas allow us to break free from the status quo. Ideas are infinite and capable of spreading without limit. Great ideas are at the root of all human progress.
