Quoting things isn’t that hard to do, it’s understanding the knowledge behind the quote, that is where the real research and understanding is to be done.
And so it is with the Imagination, and though the quotes are spread all apart through the ages, when they begin to come together, a fuller picture on the Imaginations role begins to emerge.
“Imagination is everything, it is the preview of life’s coming attraction” – Albert Eintsien
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, Imagination encircles the world” – Albert Einstien
“Imagination means nothing without doing” – Charlie Chaplin
“Reality can be beaten with enough Imagination” – Mark Twain
“Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create” – Maria Montessori
“What is now proved, was once only imagined” – William Blake
“The imagination is not a state: it is the human existence itself” – William Blake
“The power within you which enables you to form a thought-picture is the staring point of all there is” – Genevieve Behrend
“A mental image gives you a framework upon which to work. It is like the drawing of an architect, or the map of an explorer” – William Walker Atikinson
“Whatever man feels deeply or images clearly, is impressed upon the subconscious mind, and carried out in minutest detail” – Florence Schovel Shinn
“The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities” – James Allen
One could keep quoting about the Imagination and the effect that it has on our reality, though with the above, a picture begins to be formed, for:
Within man’s Imagination, Resides the Soul and Seat of all Creation
