I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see.
You have to imagine it possible before you can see something. You can have the evidence right in front of you, but if you can't imagine something that has never existed before, it's impossible.
Imagination and fiction make up more than three quarters of our real life.
Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than in the young.
W. Somerset Maugham
Imagination is the voice of daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that. He dared to imagine everything.
Some stories are true that never happened.
I am better able to imagine hell than heaven; it is my inheritance, I suppose.
Solitude is as needful to the imagination as society is wholesome for the character.
James Russell Lowell
We imagine that we want to escape our selfish and commonplace existence, but we cling desperately to our chains.
Anne Sullivan Macy
I doubt that the imagination can be suppressed. If you truly eradicated it in a child, he would grow up to be an eggplant.
Ursula K. Le Guin
Personally, I would sooner have written Alice in Wonderland than the whole Encyclopedia Britannica.
The imagination is man's power over nature.
I never did very well in math - I could never seem to persuade the teacher that I hadn't meant my answers literally.
Live out of your imagination, not your history.
You need imagination in order to imagine a future that doesn't exist.
What we imagine is order is merely the prevailing form of chaos.
Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity.
L. Frank Baum
It is the eye of ignorance that assigns a fixed and unchangeable color to every object; beware of this stumbling block.
The most imaginative people are the most credulous, for them everything is possible.
There are no shortcuts in life - only those we imagine.
