Imagination quotes
Imagination
Writing a novel is not merely going on a shopping expedition across the border to an unreal land: it is hours and years spent in the factories, the streets, the cathedrals of the imagination.

- Frame, Janet
Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.

- Tom Stoppard
Talent, lying in the understanding, is often inherited; genius, being the action of reason or imagination, rarely or never.

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I would warn you that I do not attribute to nature either beauty or deformity, order or confusion. Only in relation to our imagination can things be called beautiful or ugly, well-ordered or confused.

- Spinoza, Baruch (Benedict de)
Man is free in his imagination, but bound by his reason.

- Israel Lipkin
Imagination is more important than knowledge...

- Albert Einstein
To believe in something not yet proved and to underwrite it with our lives: it is the only way we can leave the future open. Man, surrounded by facts, permitting himself no surmise, no intuitive flash, no great hypothesis, no risk, is in a locked cell. Ignorance cannot seal the mind and imagination more surely.

- Smith, Lillian
Works of imagination should be written in very plain language; the more purely imaginative they are the more necessary it is to be plain.

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Aptitude found in the understanding and is often inherited. Genius coming from reason and imagination, rarely.

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
He has the lucidity which is the by-product of a fundamentally sterile mind. He does not have to struggle... with the crowded pulsations of a fecund imagination. On the contrary he is almost devoid of imagination.

- Bevan, Aneurin
Science does not know its debt to imagination. Goethe did not believe that a great naturalist could exist without this faculty.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
The pleasures of the imagination are as it were only drawings and models which are played with by poor people who cannot afford the real thing.

- Lichtenberg, Georg C.
So you see, imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering.

- Brenda Ueland
Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than in the young.

- W. Somerset Maugham
People often get their imagination's mixed up with their memories.

- Shaw, P.K.
I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections, and the truth of imagination.

- Keats, John
RICE-WATER, n. A mystic beverage secretly used by our most popular novelists and poets to regulate the imagination and narcotize the conscience. It is said to be rich in both obtundite and lethargine, and is brewed in a midnight fog by a fat which of the Dismal Swamp.

- Ambrose Bierce
To regard the imagination as metaphysics is to think of it as part of life, and to think of it as part of life is to realize the extent of artifice. We live in the mind.

- Stevens, Wallace
Imagination is more important than knowledge.

- Albert Einstein
Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real.

- Verne, Jules
