Necessity is the mother of invention (Plato)

Creativity cures crisis. So let's be visionaries and missionaries, who value creativity and view crises as painful, but productive, prerequisites and preludes to progress and success. Intimidating and aggravating, but stimulating and animating, our copious social, political, financial, and scientific crises are cris de coeur for creativity and vivid, viable overtures to invention. Innovation deserves a standing ovation.
