Albert Einstein
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
Carl Sagan

How delightful are the pleasures of the imagination! In those delectable moments, the whole world is ours; not a single creature resists us, we devastate the world, we repopulate it with new objects which, in turn, we immolate. The means to every crime is ours, and we employ them all, we multiply the horror a hundredfold.
Marquis de Sade

Michelangelo
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.

Robert Collier

Marquis de Sade
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. 
Henry David Thoreau
Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.  
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

John Keats
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Pablo Picasso

The imagination is man's power over nature. 
Wallace Stevens
Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
Albert Einstein
The world is but a canvas to our imaginations.
Henry David Thoreau
We are told never to cross a bridge till we come to it, but this world is owned by men who have "crossed bridges" in their imagination far ahead of the crowd. 
Speakers Library
When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.
Tuli Kupferberg
A man at work, making something which he feels will exist because he is working at it and wills it, is exercising the energies of his mind and soul as well as of his body. Memory and imagination help him as he works.
William Morris
Imagination is the eye of the soul.
Joseph Joubert
Sometimes imagination pounces; mostly it sleeps soundly in the corner, purring. 
Terri Guillemets
Imagination disposes of everything; it creates beauty, justice, and happiness, which is everything in this world.
