In Phee's words "It's really all a matter of learning to use your imagination, all proper like of course, instead of treating it like that ugly third cousin you'd just as soon stuff in a closet as look at. And what do you suppose this world of yours would be like if there weren't some around brave enough to be creative? Well, you'd be missing a whole lot of conveniences I'll tell you that, plus the scientific developments, and all the beautiful art."
