Frank Cottrell Boyce: what's the point of culture in Brexit Britain? | Music | The Guardian
"Innovation doesn’t come from the profit motive.

Innovation comes from those who are happy to embark on a course of action without quite knowing where it will lead, without doing a feasibility study, without fear of failure or too much hope of reward. The engine of innovation is reckless generosity"

I couldn't quite pick a single line to quote, but I think I'll choose this. I've been listening to a lot of FCB this weekend, and it's all rung true for me. But especially: the value of serendipity on culture, of one thing informing another months or years later, of the value of pleasure and the imagination to all walks of life. So much here.

"If you're trying to celebrate a nation's identity, you have to take things that are familiar parts of the landscape and make them wonderful. On to the wall went GK Chesteron's great aphorism: "The world shall perish not for lack of wonders, but for lack of wonder."" Lots of good thoughts from Frank Cottrell Boyce here.
