Myth Must Be Kept Alive.

“Myth must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are the artists of one kind or another. The function of the artist is the mythologization of the environment and the world.”

~Joseph Campbell

  1. I love mythology and legends, they are wonderful for working into new pieces of literature, or reworking the entire myth so that you see it from a different angle.

  2. Joseph Campbell’s quote “follow your passion and it will open doors where there where only walls before”, has lived with me for many years. So wonderful to see another quote from him.
