Quote of the Day: The Beginning is Near.

Via on Apr 17, 2012

 

Where would we be without imagination?

“The role of human imagination is to conceive of all these delightful futures and choose the most exciting, ecstatic and amazing possibility and then pull the present forward to meet it.” ~ Imaginary Foundation

Remember your third-grade teacher who told you that you couldn’t color your sun purple, and there was no such number as eleventy-billion and memorizing your times tables and your state capitols was much more important than exercising your imagination? She was wrong:

Imagination builds bridges, finds cures, writes novels, creates art, solves problems, changes lives.

Imagination plus ingenuity is a recipe for excellence.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” ~ Albert Einstein.

    "To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,—
    One clover, and a bee,
    And revery.
    The revery alone will do
    If bees are few."

    Thanks, Kate!

  3. [...] Imagination is a wonderful thing when it’s me making up stories while I people watch on the train or when I’m making up bedtime stories for my children. When it’s fueling my projections about what may or may not be going on in someone else’s mind or what he might say or do? Totally useless. [...]
