The Importance of Fantasy IV

        Seek not that your sons and your daughters should not see visions, should not dream dreams;  seek that they should see true visions, that they should dream noble dreams.

        Not to have fantasy would be to have no dreams and no visions.  But dreams and visions exist not merely for entertainment or excitement; when they are true and noble they fuel our souls.
