Imagination quotes by Yael Naim
#1. English is really free for me; there's no limits to the music and the imagination. And French, it's just I live in Paris, and it's really a poetic language where you can really play with words. #Quote by Yael Naim
Imagination quotes by Diane Paulus
#2. Creativity and the world of the imagination - the beauty of what we see as a child and the kind of play that we experience as a child - can be a way for us to survive tough times. #Quote by Diane Paulus
Imagination quotes by A.R. Cecil
#3. Within that quiet little girl with no apparent needs lived a person with a great imagination. In that shell I lived and grew and planned, until there emerged a way to pull all the loose threads of my life together. #Quote by A.R. Cecil
Imagination quotes by Terence McKenna
#4. History is ending because the dominator culture has led the human species into a blind alley, and as the inevitable chaostrophie approaches, people look for metaphors and answers. Every time a culture gets into trouble it casts itself back into the past looking for the last sane moment it ever knew. And the last sane moment we ever knew was on the plains of Africa 15,000 years ago rocked in the cradle of the Great Horned Mushroom Goddess before history, before standing armies, before slavery and property, before warfare and phonetic alphabets and monotheism, before, before, before. And this is where the future is taking us because the secret faith of the twentieth century is not modernism, the secret faith of the twentieth century is nostalgia for the archaic, nostalgia for the paleolithic, and that gives us body piercing, abstract expressionism, surrealism, jazz, rock-n-roll and catastrophe theory. The 20th century mind is nostalgic for the paradise that once existed on the mushroom dotted plains of Africa where the plant-human symbiosis occurred that pulled us out of the animal body and into the tool-using, culture-making, imagination-exploring creature that we are. And why does this matter? It matters because it shows that the way out is back and that the future is a forward escape into the past. This is what the psychedelic experience means. Its a doorway out of history and into the wiring under the board in eternity. And I tell you this because if the community understan #Quote by Terence McKenna
Imagination quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#5. There in its nasty, stinking, underground home our insulted, crushed and ridiculed mouse promptly becomes absorbed in cold, malignant and, above all, everlasting spite. For forty years together it will remember its injury down to the smallest, most ignominious details, and every time will add, of itself, details still more ignominious, spitefully teasing and tormenting itself with its own imagination. It will itself be ashamed of its imaginings, but yet it will recall it all, it will go over and over every detail, it will invent unheard of things against itself, pretending that those things might happen, and will forgive nothing. Maybe it will begin to revenge itself, too, but, as it were, piecemeal, in trivial ways, from behind the stove, incognito, without believing either in its own right to vengeance, or in the success of its revenge, knowing that from all its efforts at revenge it will suffer a hundred times more than he on whom it revenges itself, while he, I daresay, will not even scratch himself. On its deathbed it will recall it all over again, with interest accumulated over all the years… #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Imagination quotes by Denis Waitley
#6. You have all the reason in the world to achieve your grandest dreams. Imagination plus innovation equals realization. #Quote by Denis Waitley
Imagination quotes by Adam Saxton
#7. In Writing Fiction, there is no limitation of imagination....Fr Fr #Quote by Adam Saxton
Imagination quotes by Stephanie Dowrick
#8. Restraint offers a space between intention and action and the opportunity to protect others from actions or reactions that should exist only in your imagination #Quote by Stephanie Dowrick
Imagination quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#9. Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility - these three forces are the very nerve of education. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Imagination quotes by Gerard Latortue
#10. But he was not kidnapped ... It's in his imagination. He creates his own world and he believes it is reality. #Quote by Gerard Latortue
Imagination quotes by Frank Luntz
#11. The perfect opening is the word imagine, because imagine allows you to communicate in the eyes and the vision of the listener rather than yours. And the best illustration of that is "1984." Room 101 in "1984" - everyone's read it, and we all have our own imagination of what that looks like. #Quote by Frank Luntz
Imagination quotes by James K.A. Smith
#12. [E]ducation is a holistic endeavor that involves the whole person, including our bodies, in a process of formation that aims our desires, primes our imagination, and orients us to the world
all before we ever start thinking about it. #Quote by James K.A. Smith
Imagination quotes by George Saunders
#13. The best stories proceed from a mysterious truth-seeking impulse that narrative has when revised extensively; they are complex and baffling and ambiguous; they tend to make us slower to act, rather than quicker. They make us more humble, cause us to empathize with people we don't know, because they help us imagine these people, and when we imagine them - if the storytelling is good enough - we imagine them as being, essentially, like us. If the story is poor, or has an agenda, if it comes out of a paucity of imagination or is rushed, we imagine those other people as essentially unlike us: unknowable, inscrutable, incontrovertible. #Quote by George Saunders
Imagination quotes by John Marsden
#14. I guess our fate is up to us now. And we've
been there before, of course. There's something quite comforting
about it in a strange way. We've learnt a few things. We know we've
got a few things going for us. A bit of imagination, a bit of guts
sometimes, a bit of spark. #Quote by John Marsden
Imagination quotes by Chimnese Davids
#15. My wandering imagination never gives up on me and always finds ways to explore what my emotions entail. #Quote by Chimnese Davids
Imagination quotes by Alessandro Nivola
#16. I love costumes. I love getting dressed up because it really helps my imagination make the leap to believe that I am who I say I am. #Quote by Alessandro Nivola
Imagination quotes by Elena Ferrante
#17. But I was bored, I could scarcely understand them. I started to borrow novels from the circulating library, and read one after the other. But in the long run they didn't help. They presented intense lives, profound conversations, a phantom reality more appealing than my real life. So, in order to feel as if I were not real, I sometimes went ... #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Imagination quotes by Andrzej Stasiuk
#18. I lack the imagination. For that reason I have to pack, stuff into my pockets odds and ends, passport, money, and go see what it's really like. Whenever the time of year or the weather changes, I have to pack up whatever I can't do without and visit all those places I've been before, to make sure they still exist #Quote by Andrzej Stasiuk
Imagination quotes by Oscar Wilde
#19. My dear boy, the people who only love once in their lives are really the shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of the intellect - simply a confession of failures. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Imagination quotes by Gary Weiss
#20. Humiliating events have a way of capturing the public's imagination. So it has been since antiquity, when gladiators were pitted against each other and the legions of Spartacus were crucified in endless rows on the way to Rome. #Quote by Gary Weiss
Imagination quotes by Mina Khan
#21. You're just a figment of my imagination. A fantasy?"
"Yes." He didn't dare move.
"Then why are you still wearing clothes? #Quote by Mina Khan
Imagination quotes by H.W.L. Poonja
#22. Always remember: The thieves of Peace are thieves in an empty house because only imagination suffers. You are Peace, that which remains Untouched. #Quote by H.W.L. Poonja
Imagination quotes by James Madison
#23. A universal peace, it is to be feared, is in the catalogue of events, which will never exist but in the imaginations of visionary philosophers, or in the breasts of benevolent enthusiasts. #Quote by James Madison
Imagination quotes by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge
#24. Image is the root of imagination. #Quote by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge
Imagination quotes by Scott Adams
#25. Pessimism is often a failure of imagination. #Quote by Scott Adams
Imagination quotes by James C. Emlund
#26. We are but one of many ideas against a greater imagination. #Quote by James C. Emlund
Imagination quotes by Franco Bifo Berardi
#27. When dealing with a depression the problem is not to bring the depressed person back to his/her normality, to reintegrate behavior in the universal standards of normal social language. The goal is to change the focus of his/her depressive attention, to re-focalize, to deterritorialize the mind and the flow of expression. Depression is based on the stiffening of existential refrain, on the obsessive repetition of the stiffened refrain. The depressed person is unable to go out, to leave the repetitive refrain and s/he goes and goes again in the labyrinth. The goal of the schizoanalyst is to give him/her the possibility to see other landscapes, and to change the focus, to open some new ways of imagination. #Quote by Franco Bifo Berardi
Imagination quotes by Ken Robinson
#28. If you design a system to do something specific, don't be surprised if it does it. If you run an education system based on standardization and conformity that suppresses individuality, imagination, and creativity, don't be surprised it that's what it does. #Quote by Ken Robinson
Imagination quotes by Martha Gellhorn
#29. The English don't go in for imagination: imagination is considered to be improper if not downright alarmist. #Quote by Martha Gellhorn
Imagination quotes by Lajos Egri
#30. No two dramatists think or write alike. Ten thousand playwrights can take the same premise, as they have done since Shakespeare, and not one play will resemble the other except in the premise. Your knowledge, your understanding of human nature, and your imagination will take care of that. #Quote by Lajos Egri
Imagination quotes by Byron Hyde
#31. Several years ago I was lecturing in British Columbia. Dr [Simon] Wessely was speaking and he gave a thoroughly enjoyable lecture on M.E. and CFS. He had the hundreds of staff physicians laughing themselves silly over the invented griefs of the M.E. and CFS patients who according to Dr Wessely had no physical illness what so ever but a lot of misguided imagination. I was appalled at his sheer effectiveness, the amazing control he had over the minds of the staid physicians….His message was very clear and very simple. If I can paraphrase him: "M.E. and CFS are non-existent illnesses with no pathology what-so-ever. There is no reason why they all cannot return to work tomorrow.

The next morning I left by car with my crew and arrived in Kelowna British Columbia that afternoon. We were staying at a patient's house who had severe M.E. with dysautanomia and was for all purposes bed ridden or house bound most of the day. That morning she had received a phone call from her insurance company in Toronto. (Toronto is approximately 2742 miles from Vancouver). The insurance call was as follows and again I paraphrase:
"Physicians at a University of British Columbia University have demonstrated that there is no pathological or physiological basis for M.E. or CFS. Your disability benefits have been stopped as of this month. You will have to pay back the funds we have sent you previously. We will contact you shortly with the exact amount you owe us".

That night I s #Quote by Byron Hyde
Imagination quotes by Joe Meno
#32. I don't like the fact that no one has any imagination anymore. It doesn't pay to be a dreamer because all they really want you to do is answer the phone. Nobody wants you to think about anything new or use your brain or make anything interesting because everything important has already been made. America is over; it's done being brilliant.Everything genius has already been built, like all the great works of art have already been produced. #Quote by Joe Meno
Imagination quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#33. I don't like psychiatrists," Alecto told her. "Not because they don't think I'm real, but because they have no idea what they're doing. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Imagination quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#34. Your ears hear much,
but your heart hears more.
Your eyes see much,
but your mind sees more.
Your toungue says much,
but your soul says more.
Your feet travel much,
but your imagination travels more.
Your hands do much,
but your mind does more. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Imagination quotes by John Irving
#35. When (The World According To) Garp was published, people who'd lost children wrote to me. 'I lost one, too,' they told me. I confessed to them that I hadn't lost any children. I'm just a father with a good imagination. In my imagination, I lose my children every day. (afterword) #Quote by John Irving
Imagination quotes by Shane Claiborne
#36. The greatest sin of political imagination: Thinking there is no other way except the filthy rotten system we have today. #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Imagination quotes by Matthea Harvey
#37. I don't think that you can say by any stretch of the imagination that all Wisconsin or Brooklyn-based poets write in a particular way. Similar sensibilities can spring up next to each other in the flower bed, or across oceans. #Quote by Matthea Harvey
Imagination quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#38. Nursing a grudge only perpetuates the offender's power over you. He continues to live in your head, reinforcing your frustration, polluting your imagination with thoughts of getting even. Don't let him get away with that. He may or may not deserve forgiveness, but you deserve better than to waste your energy being angry at him. Letting go is the best revenge. Forgiveness is the identifying marker of the stronger party to the dispute. It is truly a favor you do yourself, not an undeserved gesture to the person who hurt you. Be kind to yourself and forgive. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Imagination quotes by Jack Gantos
#39. It's like when you read a book and you know that the words are important, but the images blossoming in your imagination are even more important because it's your mind that allows the words to come to life. #Quote by Jack Gantos
Imagination quotes by Helene Gremillon
#40. It is not other people who inflict the worst disappointments, but the shock between reality and the extravagance of our imagination. #Quote by Helene Gremillon
Imagination quotes by Maureen Howard
#41. I like density, not volume. I like to leave something to the imagination. The reader must fit the pieces together, with the author's discreet help. #Quote by Maureen Howard
Imagination quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#42. I look over at my hero shelf and see Philip Levine, Rainer Maria Rilke, Virginia Woolf, Shunryu Suzuki, Adrienne Rich, Pablo Neruda, Subcomandante Marcos, Eduardo Galeano, James Baldwin. These books are, if they are instructions at all, instructions in extending our identities out into the world, human and nonhuman, in imagination as a great act of empathy that lifts you out of yourself, not locks you down into your gender.
("80 Books No Woman Should Read") #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Imagination quotes by Edmund Burke
#43. It is from this absolute indifference and tranquillity of the mind, that mathematical speculations derive some of the most considerable advantages; because there is nothing to interest the imagination; because the judgment sits free and unbiased to examine the point. All proportions, every arrangement of quantity, is alike to the understanding, because the same truths result to it from all; from greater from lesser, from equality and inequality. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Imagination quotes by Gail Carriger
#44. The more Lord Maccon considered it, the more he grew to like the idea. Certainly his imagination was full of pictures of what he and Alexia might do together once he got her home in a properly wedded state, but now those lusty images were mixing with others: waking up next to her, seeing her across the dining table, discussing science and politics, having her advice on points of pack controversy and BUR difficulties. No doubt she would be useful in verbal frays and social machinations, as long as she was on his side. #Quote by Gail Carriger
Imagination quotes by Terence McKenna
#45. The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas.
It is the night sea journey, the lone fisherman on a tropical sea with his nets, and you let these nets down - sometimes, something tears through them that leaves them in shreds and you just row for shore, and put your head under your bed and pray.
At other times what slips through are the minutiae, the minnows of this ichthyological metaphor of idea chasing.
But, sometimes, you can actually bring home something that is food, food for the human community that we can sustain ourselves on and go forward. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Imagination quotes by Ronald Reagan
#46. The key for any speaker is to establish his own point of view for the audience, so they can see the game through his eyes. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Imagination quotes by Cressida Cowell
#47. There's no such thing as im-POSSIBLE, Hiccup, only im-PROBABLE. The only thing that limits us are the limits to our imagination #Quote by Cressida Cowell
Imagination quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding
#48. Because of his capacity for abstract communications and language and his ability to enter in imagination into the lives of others, man is able to build organizations of a size and complexity far beyond those of the lower animals. #Quote by Kenneth E. Boulding
Imagination quotes by Zig Ziglar
#49. Reading has been the fuel of my motivation: it has changed the direction in which I have traveled, and it has enhanced my creative imagination more than any other activity I have ever pursued. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Imagination quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#50. A dream is the reality of a future that exists in a person's imagination. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Imagination quotes by Chris Colfer
#51. so thanks for supplying all the inspiration." "But think of everything you came up with all on your own," she said. "You would have done just fine without me. I wish I had your imagination. What's your secret to making a story so good? Do you have any writing tricks or rituals?" Conner had never thought about it before. He thought back to the very first time he wrote a story and recalled a tool that had helped him write ever since. "Whenever I write, I imagine everything in Dad's voice," he said. "I try to describe everything with the same energy and enthusiasm he had when he read stories to us. Sometimes when I miss him the most, writing makes me feel like he's there with me. #Quote by Chris Colfer
Imagination quotes by M. Teresa Clayton
#52. The skeleton key unlocks the mind and swings open the door of imagination. A far better place than here A much safer place than there The quintessential somewhere The mystical nowhere The enigmatic anywhere My gift to you - the key to everywhere.
The mortal will find itself lost while the soul always knows the way it is grateful for the darkness and celebrates the day

I can give you peace my peace I give you... but I cannot be your savior or your god - I cannot be the light along your path - I can only give you the lamp and point the way.

The blind will see... the deaf will hear... but those who choose reason will never understand.

Woe to the ones who think they know the answers they will cease to ask the questions that may be their own salvation.

We possess the knowledge of the Universe from conception. Once born we are taught to forget.

If we cannot look out at our world and see our children's vision then we are truly blind we are unable to lead them to paradise.

"Even people who are in the dark search for their shadows. Shadows exist only if there is light. We will never find total darkness - not even in death... ...and we always cast a shadow no matter how overcast our skies become. You are never alone."

Do not listen to the voice that shouts to you from behind desks behind podiums behind altars. Do not pay attention to the orators and the opportunists. Do not be distracted by th #Quote by M. Teresa Clayton
Imagination quotes by Ai Weiwei
#53. I think art certainly is the vehicle for us to develop any new ideas, to be creative, to extend our imagination, to change the current conditions. #Quote by Ai Weiwei
Imagination quotes by Debasish Mridha
#54. The limits of your imagination create the boundaries of your world. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Imagination quotes by Bukoye Micheal
#55. Imagination releases curiosity and sensitivity triggers creativity #Quote by Bukoye Micheal
Imagination quotes by Erin McKean
#56. It doesn't really matter [if she ever wears the dress], as long as she loves it. She'll wear it a hundred times in her imagination before she even tries it on again. As long as she has the option of wearing it, she'll be happy. #Quote by Erin McKean
Imagination quotes by Bram Stoker
#57. Then a dog began to howl somewhere in a farmhouse far down the road, a long, agonized wailing, as if from fear. The sound was taken up by another dog, and then another and another, till, borne on the wind which now sighed softly through the Pass, a wild howling began, which seemed to come from all over the country, as far as the imagination could grasp it through the gloom of the night. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Imagination quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#58. This young world desires that there should arrive or appear from the outside-not happiness-but misfortune; and their imagination is already busy beforehand to form a monster out of it, so that they may afterwards be able to fight with a monster. If these distress-seekers felt the power to benefit themselves, to do something for themselves from internal sources, they would also understand how to create a distress of their own, specially their own, from internal sources. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Imagination quotes by Robert Collier
#59. Vision - It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be. Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own. #Quote by Robert Collier
Imagination quotes by Michael Chabon
#60. Those who make their living flirting with catastrophe develop a faculty of pessimistic imagination, of anticipating the worst, that is often all but indistinguishable from clairvoyance. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Imagination quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#61. When we use our imagination properly it is our greatest friend; it goes belyond reason and is the only light that takes us everywhere. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Imagination quotes by John O'Donohue
#62. I am sure of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Imagination quotes by Suheir Hammad
#63. The machine will grind you down, but the machine is not bigger than the imagination. Rome fell in a day. We know this. #Quote by Suheir Hammad
Imagination quotes by Bryce Courtenay
#64. The imagination is always the best torturer. #Quote by Bryce Courtenay
Imagination quotes by Robert Collier
#65. Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print, and begin to build. #Quote by Robert Collier
Imagination quotes by Debasish Mridha
#66. Imagination is the stepping-stone for the new exciting creations. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Imagination quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#67. The exercise of imagination is dangerous to those who profit from the way things are because it has the power to show that the way things are is not permanent, not universal, not necessary. Having that real though limited power to put established institutions into question, imaginative literature has also the responsibility of power. The storyteller is the truthteller. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Imagination quotes by Lin Yutang
#68. Probably the difference between man and the monkeys is that the monkeys are merely bored, while man has boredom plus imagination. #Quote by Lin Yutang
Imagination quotes by Saul D. Alinsky
#69. Curiosity, irreverence, imagination, sense of humor, a free and open mind, an acceptance of the relativity of values and of the uncertainty of life, all inevitably fuse into the kind of person whose greatest joy is creation. #Quote by Saul D. Alinsky
Imagination quotes by Ruby Wax
#70. I always ask the booksellers to look at me and recommend a book; 9 out of 10, they get it right; it's usually a book about someone dysfunctional. To me bookstores are like brothels of imagination, each book is luring me over going, 'Read me, read me'. #Quote by Ruby Wax
Imagination quotes by Muna Adnan Naqi
#71. Every time you think of escaping mentally or physically, grab the book that lies inches away from your heart. #Quote by Muna Adnan Naqi
Imagination quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#72. The readers of Isabel's journal were affected by the conversations within its covers-if nothing else, the livingroom of their moral imagination became bigger. And this must surely have some bearing on the way they dealt with the world, even in the small transactions of life: awareness of the pain of others here, a word of comfort there. Of course, the admission of kindness to one's life did not spring from any contimplation of the views of Hobbes (selfish Hobbes) and Hume (the good, generous Davey), but it did no harm to know about all of that. And that was where philosophy really did count: it set out the major choices behind all of those practical day-to-day questions of charity and understanding and simple decency; it was the weatherthe backdrop against which those practical matters were debated. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Imagination quotes by Anton Szandor LaVey
#73. But the average person doesnt have that much imagination. They just want to be entertained. They want to have the tableau presented for them. They dont want to participate beyond a certain point. They want the safety of the herd, to be catered to, sit back and enjoy. #Quote by Anton Szandor LaVey
Imagination quotes by John Marshall
#74. Paris presents one incessant round of amusement & dissipation but very little, I believe - even for its inhabitants of that society - which interests the heart. Every day, you may see something new, magnificent & beautiful; every night, you may see a spectacle which astonishes & enchants the imagination. #Quote by John Marshall
Imagination quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#75. It is usually the imagination that is wounded first, rather than the heart; it being much more sensitive. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Imagination quotes by Martin Heidegger
#76. To this man, who overcomes himself, Nietzsche gives a name which is easily misunderstood. He calls him 'the superman'. But Nietzsche does not mean a type who casts off 'humanity,' to make sheer caprice the law and titanic rage the rule. The superman is the man who first leads the essential nature of existing man over into its truth, and so assumes that truth. Existing man, by being thus determined and secured, in his essential nature, is to be rendered capable of becoming the future master of the earth - of wielding to high purpose the powers that will fall to future man in the nature of the technological transformation of the earth and of human activity. The essential figure of this man, the superman rightly understood, is not a product of an unbridled and degenerate imagination rushing headlong into the void. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Imagination quotes by Jules Michelet
#77. Coffee, the sober drink, the mighty nourishment of the brain, which unlike other spirits, heightens purity and lucidity; coffee, which clears the clouds of the imagination and their gloomy weight; which illuminates the reality of things suddenly with the flush of truth. #Quote by Jules Michelet
Imagination quotes by Ismail Kadare
#78. I first came across the script for 'Macbeth' between the ages of 11 and 12; it was the first book that shook my life. Because I did not yet understand that I could simply purchase it in a bookstore, I copied much of it by hand and took it home. My childhood imagination pushed me to feel like a co-author of the play. #Quote by Ismail Kadare
Imagination quotes by August Kubizek
#79. Externally Hitler sill appears a drifting character: he has failed at school, has no employment, has been rejected by the Academy, is in Vienna for no clearly stated purpose, lives on a pittance eked out by painting postcards. But behind this shiftless exterior Kubizek constructs what must have been there, although it was not apparent to casual acquaintances: the character of the man who, from these beginnings, without any other natural advantages besides his own personality, became the most powerful and terrible tyrant and conqueror of modern history. Here we see - along with the incipient monomania, the repetitive cliches, and the Wagnerian romanticism of his later years - the early evidence of that unbreakable will power, that extraordinary self-confidence. We see the penniless, unemployed, unemployable young Hitler, at sixteen, confidently rebuilding in his imagination the city of Linz, as he was afterwards to rebuild it in fact, and never for a moment doubting that he would one day carry out these improbable plans; we see him exercising over an elderly Austrian upholsterer that irresistible hypnotic power with which he was afterwards to seduce a whole nation; we see him, in Vienna, fortifying himself against a corrupt and purposeless society by adopting an iron asceticism, like some ancient crusader guarding himself against corruption in a pagan world. And then turning to detail, we see in Vienna, when Kubizek was closest to him, the working of Hitler's mind as it feels #Quote by August Kubizek
Imagination quotes by Jesmyn Ward
#80. The truth, as I see it, is that if black men and women, black boys and girls, mattered, if we were seen as living, we would not be dying simply because whites don't like us. Our deaths inside a system of racism existed before we were born. The legacy of black bodies as property and subsequently three-fifths human continues to pollute the white imagination. To inhabit our citizenry fully, we have to not only understand this, but also grasp it. #Quote by Jesmyn Ward
Imagination quotes by Haruki Murakami
#81. The better you were able to imagine what you wanted to imagine, the farther you could flee from reality. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Imagination quotes by S.A. Tawks
#82. You may not have finished today but the work you did got you closer than if you would have done nothing. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Imagination quotes by Herbert Gold
#83. The fact that all of us die anyway (the rumor turns out to be true) is a mere detail in the celestial glow of imagination. The artist's eyes destroy death. #Quote by Herbert Gold
Imagination quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#84. Books are carnival rides for your imagination. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Imagination quotes by Mooji
#85. I come to call you Home.
Those who resonate with my words and follow them internally, will find that place and know It's completeness, its joy and fullness.
I have come to call you away from suffering, from fear and from a life of sorrow and into your own, divine Being.
I did not come here to give you decorative stories, to excite your imagination, or sign you up for some long program but to show you how available Truth is, and to remind you that you are never separate from It.
No person on this planet is apart from the Truth in the Heart and yet the world is so vast and varied in expression.
The greatest good and greatest evil is here.
In this forest of duality and complexity you must find your way Home.
You must win your Self back. Wisdom and trust will be your compass.
Many voices came to call us but we are here today because we are freshly called by the voice of God, Love, Truth.
Do not come half way home, but fully home.
I know the voice that called you is true and Truth and that where you are being called to is also Real.
It is inside your own Heart.
It is what gives me the strength to be here.
I love to see the beings being set free from the hypnosis of conditioning; from fears, false projection and the grip of ego.
And I know that to be liberated is not difficult.
It requires only openness and the sincere desire to be free.
I don't need to hear anything about your past.

Imagination quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#86. But we shouldn't be concerned about trees purely for material reasons, we should also care about them because of the little puzzles and wonders they present us with. Under the canopy of the trees, daily dramas and moving love stories are played out. Here is the last remaining piece of Nature, right on our doorstep, where adventures are to be experienced and secrets discovered. And who knows, perhaps one day the language of trees will eventually be deciphered, giving us the raw material for further amazing stories. Until then, when you take your next walk in the forest, give free rein to your imagination-in many cases, what you imagine is not so far removed from reality, after all! #Quote by Peter Wohlleben
Imagination quotes by Arundhati Roy
#87. He walked on water. Perhaps. But could he have *swum* on land? In matching knickers and dark glasses? With his Fountain in a Love-in-Tokyo? In pointy shoes and a puff? Would he have had the imagination? #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Imagination quotes by Sadghuru
#88. You are not suffering yesterday or tomorrow. You are only suffering your memory and your imagination. #Quote by Sadghuru
Imagination quotes by Friedrich Dessauer
#89. The work of the inventor consists of conceptualizing, combining, and ordering what is possible according to the laws of nature. This inner working out which precedes the external has a twofold characteristic: the participation of the subconscious in the inventing subject; and that encounter with an external power which demands and obtains complete subjugation, so that the way to the solution is experienced as the fitting of one's own imagination to this power. #Quote by Friedrich Dessauer
Imagination quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#90. Sweet words. Gentle deceptive balm. Help, love, to belong together, to come back again - words, sweet words. Nothing but words. How many words existed for this simple, wild, cruel attraction of two bodies! What a rainbow of imagination, lies, sentiment, and self-deception enclosed it! #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Imagination quotes by Diane Setterfield
#91. They are more real than the books on the shelves, books that are sketched with the barest hint of a line here and there, fading in places to a ghostly nothingness. Why recall the picture now, you must be wondering. The reason I remember it so well is that it seems to be an image of the way I have lived my own life. I have closed my study door on the world and shut myself away with people of my imagination. #Quote by Diane Setterfield
Imagination quotes by Eugene Kennedy
#92. The object of religion is the imagination, that deep and inexhaustible font of our understanding and symbolizing our deepest possibilities. #Quote by Eugene Kennedy
Imagination quotes by Dion Fortune
#93. To say that a thing is imaginary is not to dispose of it in the realm of mind, for the imagination, or the image making faculty, is a very important part of our mental functioning. An image formed by the imagination is a reality from the point of view of psychology; it is quite true that it has no physical existence, but are we going to limit reality to that which is material? We shall be far out of our reckoning if we do, for mental images are potent things, and although they do not actually exist on the physical plane, they influence it far more than most people suspect. #Quote by Dion Fortune
Imagination quotes by Herbert Spencer
#94. There can be little question that good composition is far less dependent upon acquaintance with its laws, than upon practice and natural aptitude. A clear head, a quick imagination, and a sensitive ear, will go far towards making all rhetorical precepts needless. #Quote by Herbert Spencer
Imagination quotes by Napoleon Hill
#95. The only trouble with this world today lies in our lack of understanding of the power of imagination. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Imagination quotes by Geoffrey Wood
#96. Properly understood, Imagination and Prayer are directly proportional - the more they pray beyond their bounds, they expand their vision beyond their resources, their experiences, their expectations. #Quote by Geoffrey Wood
Imagination quotes by Andrew Bird
#97. I don't like super-descriptive modern fiction. I like, "Here's what was happening in 1582 all over the planet." Then that gets my imagination going. #Quote by Andrew Bird
Imagination quotes by Terence McKenna
#98. The imagination is a dimension of nonlocal information #Quote by Terence McKenna
Imagination quotes by Germaine De Stael
#99. Sensibility, imagination, reason, each is subservient to the other. Every one of these faculties would be nothing but a disease, but weakness, instead of strength, if it were not modified or completed by the collective character of our nature. #Quote by Germaine De Stael
Imagination quotes by Henry Drummond
#100. ... something wholly new in religious thought. All other heavens have been gardens, dreamlands: passivities, more or less aimless. Even to the majority among ourselves, heaven is a siesta and not a city.
The heaven of Christianity is different from all other heavens, because the religion of Christianity is different from all other religions. Christianity is the religion of cities. It moves among real things. Its sphere is the street, the market-place, the working life of the world... Try to restore the natural force of the expression - suppose John to have lived today and to have said 'I saw a new London. #Quote by Henry Drummond
Imagination quotes by Walter Savage Landor
#101. Fancy is imagination in her youth and adolescence. Fancy is always excursive; imagination, not seldom, is sedate. #Quote by Walter Savage Landor
Imagination quotes by John Boyne
#102. Neither your mother nor I have any imagination at all and we certainly didn't bring you up to have one #Quote by John Boyne
Imagination quotes by F.K. Preston

Imagination quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#104. An unbridled imagination is the fountain of youth; it's what keeps us young at heart. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Imagination quotes by Andrew Sean Greer
#105. I am sure we each loved a different man. Because a lover exists only in fragments, a dozen or so if the romance is new, a thousand if we've married him, and out of those fragments our heart constructs an entire person. What we each create, since whatever is missing is filled in by our imagination, is the person we wish him to be. The less we know him, of course, the more we love him. And that's why we always remember that first rapturous night when he was a stranger, and why this rapture returns only when he is dead. #Quote by Andrew Sean Greer
Imagination quotes by Albert Camus
#106. When the imagination sleeps, words are emptied of their meaning: a deaf population absent-mindedly registers the condemnation of a man ... there is no other solution but to speak out and show the obscenity hidden under the verbal cloak. #Quote by Albert Camus
Imagination quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#107. Running! If there is any activity happier, more exhilarating, more nourishing to the imagination, I cannot think of what it might be. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Imagination quotes by Janet Malcolm
#108. Before the magisterial mess of Trevor Thomas's house, the orderly houses that most of us live in seem meagre and lifeless
as, in the same way, the narratives called biographies pale and shrink in the face of the disorderly actuality that is a life. The house also stirred my imagination as a metaphor for the problem of writing. Each person who sits down to write faces not a blank page but his own overfilled mind. The problem is to clear out most of what is in it ... The goal is to make a space where a few ideas and images and feelings may be so arranged that a reader will want to linger awhile among them, rather than to flee, as I wanted to flee from Thomas's house. #Quote by Janet Malcolm
Imagination quotes by Koji Suzuki
#109. Asakawa himself didn't much care if the company made money or lost it. All that mattered to him was whether or not the work was engaging. No matter how easy a job was physically, if it didn't involve imagination, it usually ended up exhausting you. #Quote by Koji Suzuki
Imagination quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#110. What is this thing of intangible substance that wreaks consequential havoc on our lives? What is this sensitive thread that runs through heart and mind, and when given the slightest tremor grasps hold of all sanity, dragging the afflicted down to insufferable depths or flinging him weightless to euphoric heights? What is this magic we would deem imagination, fantasy, or pretend if not for the evidence of power manifest by human consequences? Effortlessly controlling us, it affects the infected in an instant. It takes but one word, one thought, one act to become immersed.
To stop it is hopeless.
To stifle it, demanding.
To think to master it is both improbable and pretentious.
What is this invisible hand that blinds our eyes and reigns hearts with a string? It is nature's drug and poison we call emotion. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Imagination quotes by Sean Parker
#111. I suffer from the delusion that every product of my imagination is not only possible, but always on the cusp of becoming real. #Quote by Sean Parker
Imagination quotes by Hegel Georg Wilhelm Friedric 1770-1831
#112. maternal love, the most successful object of the religious imagination of romantic art. For the most part real and human, it is yet entirely spiritual, without the interest and exigency of desire, not sensuous and yet present: absolutely satisfied and blissful spiritual depth. It is a love without craving, but it is not friendship; for be friendship never so rich in emotion, it yet demands a content, something essential, as a mutual end and aim. Whereas, without any reciprocity of aim and interests, maternal love has an immediate support in the natural bond of connection. But in this instance the mother's love is not at all restricted to the natural side. In the child which she conceived and then bore in travail, Mary has the complete knowledge and feeling of herself; and the same child, blood of her blood, stands all the same high above her, and nevertheless this higher being belongs to her and is the object in which she forgets and maintains herself. The natural depth of feeling in the mother's love is altogether spiritualized; it has the Divine as its proper content, but this spirituality remains lowly and unaware, marvellously penetrated by natural oneness and human feeling. It is the blissful maternal love, the love of the one mother alone who was the first recipient of this joy. Of course this love too is not without grief, but the grief is only the sorrow of loss, lamentation for her suffering, dying, and dead son, and does not, as we shall see at a later stage,[9] res #Quote by Hegel Georg Wilhelm Friedric 1770-1831
Imagination quotes by Glennon Doyle Melton
#113. The truest, most beautiful life never promises to be an easy one. We need to let go of the lie that it's supposed to be.
Each of those women has begun to live from her imagination. Here's how: Each honored her own discontent. She did not dismiss it, bury it, deflect it, deny it, blame it on someone else, or tell herself to shut up and be grateful. She heard her Knowing whisper "Not this," and she admitted to herself that she heard it. She sat with it for a while. Then she dared to utter her inner whisper out loud. She shared her discontent with another human being.
Then, when she was ready to move from Not this to This instead, she dared to call upon her imagination to tell her the story she was born to tell with her life. She dreamed up what it would look like to have her specific version of truth and beauty come to life. She looked for the blueprint she'd been born with, the one she'd forgotten existed. She unearthed her unseen order: her original plan. #Quote by Glennon Doyle Melton
Imagination quotes by Adi Shankara
#114. You never identify yourself with the shadows cast by your body, or with its reflection, or with the body you see in a dream or in your imagination. Therefore you should not identify yourself with this living body either. #Quote by Adi Shankara
Imagination quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#115. The figure of my father looms large in my imagination. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Imagination quotes by Annie Dillard
#116. Father had stretched out his long legs and was tilting back in his chair. Mother sat with her knees crossed, in blue slacks, smoking a Chesterfield. The dessert dishes were still on the table. My sisters were nowhere in evidence. It was a warm evening; the big dining-room windows gave onto blooming rhododendrons.

Mother regarded me warmly. She gave me to understand that she was glad I had found what I had been looking for, but that she and father were happy to sit with their coffee, and would not be coming down.

She did not say, but I understood at once, that they had their pursuits (coffee?) and I had mine. She did not say, but I began to understand then, that you do what you do out of your private passion for the thing itself.

I had essentially been handed my own life. In subsequent years my parents would praise my drawings and poems, and supply me with books, art supplies, and sports equipment, and listen to my troubles and enthusiasms, and supervise my hours, and discuss and inform, but they would not get involved with my detective work, nor hear about my reading, nor inquire about my homework or term papers or exams, nor visit the salamanders I caught, nor listen to me play the piano, nor attend my field hockey games, nor fuss over my insect collection with me, or my poetry collection or stamp collection or rock collection. My days and nights were my own to plan and fill. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Imagination quotes by Harvey Keitel
#117. He brought imagination to the story of the Creation. #Quote by Harvey Keitel
Imagination quotes by Zelda Fitzgerald
#118. I have often told you that I am that little fish who swims about under a shark and, I believe, lives indelicately on its offal. Anyway, that is the way I am. Life moves over me in a vast black shadow and I swallow whatever it drops with relish, having learned in a very hard school that one cannot be both a parasite and enjoy self-nourishment without moving in worlds too fantastic for even my disordered imagination to people with meaning. #Quote by Zelda Fitzgerald
Imagination quotes by Nicholas Boothman
#119. Your imagination is tricking you into making negative assumptions about people based on past experience. Your imagination is running the show, and the score is coming imagination one, you zero. #Quote by Nicholas Boothman

Imagination quotes by Pierre Coupey
#122. I think part of being an artist is having the ability to define your own responsibilities. I certainly wouldn't prescribe any. As far as I'm concerned, my biggest responsibility is to my own imagination. We're all conduits. Art preceded me, and it'll be here long after I'm gone. #Quote by Pierre Coupey
Imagination quotes by Carolyn Wells
#123. What is the use of having an imagination if you can't make it work for you? #Quote by Carolyn Wells
Imagination quotes by John C. Hawkes
#124. I'm only interested in fiction that in some way or other voices the very imagination which is conceiving it. #Quote by John C. Hawkes
Imagination quotes by Natasha Tsakos

Imagination quotes by Marcel Proust
#126. But,instead of what our imagination makes us suppose and which we worthless try to discover,life gives us something that we could hardly imagine. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Imagination quotes by LeVar Burton
#127. Reading a hard copy book, and reading a book on an iPad are slightly different experiences. What they both have in common though is that you must engage your imagination in the process. #Quote by LeVar Burton
Imagination quotes by Alain Robbe-Grillet
#128. Memory belongs to the imagination. Human memory is not like a computer which records things; it is part of the imaginative process, on the same terms as invention. #Quote by Alain Robbe-Grillet
Imagination quotes by Ryan Henry Ward Artist
#129. Compassion is born from the imagination. To have the desire to be compassionate, you have to imagine a world that's better than the one you live in. #Quote by Ryan Henry Ward Artist
Imagination quotes by Nat Hentoff
#130. Recently, an internationally renowned writer for children commented about the Council [on Interracial Books for Children, Inc.] to me: "Of course, we should all be more tender and understanding toward the aged and we should work to shrive ourselves of racism and sexism, but when you impose guidelines like theirs on writing, you're strangling the imagination. And that means that you're limiting the ability of children to imagine. If all books for them were 'cleansed' according to these criteria, it would be the equivalent of giving them nothing to eat but white bread."
"To write according to such guidelines," this story teller continued, "is to take the life out of what you do. Also the complexity, the ambivalence. And thereby the young reader gets no real sense of the wonders and terrors and unpredictabilities of living. Paradoxically, censors like the council clamor for 'truth' but are actually working to flatten children's reading experiences into the most misleading, simplistic kinds of untruth."

Imagination quotes by Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki
#137. In magic I believe I can control certain elements of my environment, I believe I can control certain aspects of my endocrine system, through imagination, visualization, breathing techniques, which in a sense come into the scientific aspects. So magic is a combination, its a soup, a delightful combination of art, imagination, visualization, fantasy, with a healthy dose of solid basis, because it is a science. The thing is we've lost the keys. #Quote by Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki
Imagination quotes by William Goldman
#138. I think pain is the most underrated emotion available to us," the Count said. "The Serpent, to my
interpretation, was pain. Pain has been with us always, and it always irritates me when people say 'as
important as life and death' because the proper phrase, to my mind, should be, 'as important as pain and
death.'" The Count fell silent for a time then, as he began and completed a series of complex adjustments.
"One of my theories," he said somewhat later, "is that pain involves anticipation. Nothing original, I
admit, but I'm going to demonstrate to you what I mean: I will not, underline not, use the Machine on
you this evening. I could. It's ready and tested. But instead I will simply erect it and leave it beside you,
for you to stare at the next twenty-four hours, wondering just what it is and how it works and can it really
be as dreadful as all that." He tightened some things here, loosened some more over there, tugged and
patted and shaped.
The Machine looked so silly Westley was tempted to giggle. Instead, he groaned again.
"I'll leave you to your imagination, then," the Count said, and he looked at Westley. "But I want you to
know one thing before tomorrow night happens to you, and I mean it: you are the strongest, the most
brilliant and brave, the most altogether worthy creature it has ever been my privilege to meet, and I feel
almost sad that, for the purposes of my book and future pain scholars, I m #Quote by William Goldman

Imagination quotes by Barry Lopez
#141. Conversations are efforts toward good relations. They are an elementary form of reciprocity. They are the exercise of our love for each other. They are the enemies of our loneliness, our doubt, our anxiety, our tendencies to abdicate. To continue to be in good conversation over our enormous and terrifying problems is to be calling out to each other in the night. If we attend with imagination and devotion to our conversations, we will find what we need; and someone among us will act - it does not matter whom - and we will survive. #Quote by Barry Lopez
Imagination quotes by Sam Worthington
#142. Any acting is a stretch of the imagination. That's your job. Acting is truth in imaginary circumstances. Acting with green screen or a motion capture stage, you're striving for absolute truth in absolutely imaginary circumstances. #Quote by Sam Worthington
Imagination quotes by Alan Moore
#143. Rather than being able to have a healthy relationship with our own sexual imagination, we're driven into some dark corners by shame and embarrassment and guilt, and those dark corners breed all sorts of monsters. #Quote by Alan Moore
Imagination quotes by Margaret Pemberton
#144. She had defeated loneliness by bringing to life the books that peopled her imagination and making friends of them.

With devastating clarity she saw that her ability was not only a panacea for unhappiness. It was her lifeblood. Part of the very fiber of her being. And here, in Hollywood, it could be fulfilled.

She didn't want to be an actress.

She was one.

All she had to do to be a star was to be true to herself. #Quote by Margaret Pemberton
Imagination quotes by Nelson Rodrigues
#145. The Human Being, as we imagine it, does not exist. #Quote by Nelson Rodrigues
Imagination quotes by Samuel Johnson
#146. The student who would build his knowledge on solid foundations, and proceed by just degrees to the pinnacles of truth, is directed by the great philosopher of France to begin by doubting of his own existence. In like manner, whoever would complete any arduous and intricate enterprise, should, as soon as his imagination can cool after the first blaze of hope, place before his own eyes every possible embarrassment that may retard or defeat him. He should first question the probability of success, and then endeavour to remove the objections that he has raised. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Imagination quotes by John McGahern
#147. The imagination demands that life be told slant because of its need of distance. #Quote by John McGahern

#148. Man is the most irrational of beings, because his imagination is always deceiving him about reality. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Imagination quotes by Philip Levine
#149. Oh, yes, let's bless the imagination. It gives us the myths we live by. Let's bless the visionary power of the human - the only animal that's got it - , bless the exact image of your father dead and mine dead, bless the images that stalk the corners of our sight and will not let go. #Quote by Philip Levine

Imagination quotes by Tim Sanders
#152. The next time you are filled with worry, try Carrier's strategy: 1. Define the worst case. Ask yourself honestly, What's the worst thing that can happen? Once you do that, you'll find that your imagination is getting the best of you. The reality is usually not that bad, once you clearly define it. It has the most power when it remains a mystery. 2. Accept it as survivable. Act as if the situation were a foregone conclusion, and let it go as a lesson to be learned. At the very least, admit that there will be some negative repercussions, regardless of your best efforts. 3. Make a goal out of beating the worst-case scenario. Develop a set of responses that can help you trim your losses and mitigate damages. #Quote by Tim Sanders
Imagination quotes by George Takei
#153. If leadership requires a fired-up sense of purpose and imagination, it also demands a profound connection to the society to be led. Like it or not, this is our culture, and we should embrace and celebrate it, even while we strive to refine and shape it. #Quote by George Takei

Imagination quotes by Patti Callahan Henry
#156. I know this about imagination: It needs a place to go. If I don't work at my cards and images and letterpress, if I don't touch the cut metal and carved wood fonts and imagine different patterns as I place letters next to others in a new way, my ideas will turn inward. #Quote by Patti Callahan Henry

Imagination quotes by Odilon Redon
#159. I have often, as an exercise and as a sustenance, painted before an object down to the smallest accidents of its visual appearance; but the day left me sad and with an unsatiated thirst. The next day I let the other source run, that of imagination, through the recollection of the forms and I was then reassured and appeased. #Quote by Odilon Redon

Imagination quotes by Mark Batterson
#164. In the words of Harriet Doerr, "One of the best things about aging is being able to watch imagination overtake memory." So who's right? The neurologists? Or Harriet? The answer is both. As we age, either imagination overtakes memory or memory overtakes imagination. Imagination is the road less taken, but it is the pathway of prayer. Prayer and imagination are directly proportional: the more you pray the bigger your imagination becomes because the Holy Spirit supersizes it with God-sized dreams. One litmus test of spiritual maturity is whether your dreams are getting bigger or smaller. The older you get, the more faith you should have because you've experienced more of God's faithfulness. And it is God's faithfulness that increases our faith and enlarges our dreams. There is certainly nothing wrong with an occasional stroll down memory lane, but God wants you to keep dreaming until the day you die. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Imagination quotes by Michael Rooker
#165. There's always room. That's what the directors usually want. They want the performer to bring themselves and give what they have to give for the role. The smart ones allow that to happen because then it becomes even more organic within the performer's imagination. It becomes even more real. It's not always a given in other films, but when Gunn works, and we all work together in a collaborative way like that, it becomes a given that you bring it. It becomes a lot of fun. #Quote by Michael Rooker
Imagination quotes by Cherry Adair
#166. Her heartbeat went from fear-frantic to lust-induced, manic tom-tom in a tenth of a second. "Sebastian." A frisson ran from her temple to her toes and the tight place inside her chest unfurled as she breathed his name. "Are you real?"
In response he plunged his fingers into her wet hair. Gripping her head in a hard palm, he took her mouth in a rough, carnal kiss that left nothing to the imagination. She knew precisely what he wanted because ever since that night, she'd been wanting it, too. She responded with equal passion, snaking her hand around to the back of his neck and holding him in place as she thoroughly enjoyed her first real-world kiss in way, way too long.
His mouth left hers, and she whimpered in protest. "Come back; I wasn't done."
"Patience is a virtue." He nibbled her earlobe, making her shudder, then swirled his hot, wet tongue in her ear until she arched her neck with a thick moan. His mouth, tongue, and teeth made her forget where she was for just a little while. Made her forget where she was and what was about to transpire.
Sebastian shifted his head the few inches required to plunder her mouth again. She saw fireworks behind her closed lids as he dragged his firm mouth back and forth across hers before plunging his tongue back to duel with hers.
Dizzy with lust and longing, heart about to burst out of her chest, Michaela couldn't - forgot to - draw a breath and ripped her lips from his to drag in lifesaving oxygen. "You're t-tortu #Quote by Cherry Adair

Imagination quotes by George W. Bush
#174. We may discover resources on the moon or Mars that will boggle the imagination, that will test our limits to dream. And the fascination generated by further exploration will inspire our young people to study math, and science, and engineering and create a new generation of innovators and pioneers. #Quote by George W.

Imagination quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#176. Can our culture be reclaimed? How can we stay free in the next century? While people of other countries have been restricted m to pursue prosperity, bounded only by the limits of his or her imagination. Besides, only a conservative would ask how we can STAY prosperous and free in the 21st century. A liberal would whine that only a few are prosperous-the evil rich who have somehow gotten rich off the backs of the poor. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Imagination quotes by Matt Haig
#177. I stared at the lute. At the darkness of the small holes amid the twisting decoration of the wood. I imagined, ridiculously, a world inside there. Deep in the shell of the lute. Where some miniature version of ourselves could live, safe and invisible and unharmed. #Quote by Matt Haig
Imagination quotes by Nicole Waller
#178. Yolanda Gampel utilizes an expanded concept of the "uncanny" to outline the results of violence:

Those who experience such traumas are faced with an unbelievable and unreal reality that is incompatible with anything they knew previously. As a result, they can no longer fully believe what they see with their own eyes; they have difficulty distinguishing between the unreal reality they have survived and the fears that spring from their own imagination. #Quote by Nicole Waller

Imagination quotes by Amy Bloom
#181. Nonfiction is both easier and harder to write than fiction. It's easier because the facts are already laid out before you, and there is already a narrative arc. What makes it harder is that you are not free to use your imagination and creativity to fill in any missing gaps within the story. #Quote by Amy Bloom

Imagination quotes by Hildegard Of Bingen

Imagination quotes by Edwin Howard Armstrong
#194. Not only did he teach by accomplishment, but he taught by the inspiration of a marvelous imagination that refused to accept the permanence of what appeared to others to be insuperable difficulties: an imagination of the goals of which, in a number of instances, are still in the realms of speculation. #Quote by Edwin Howard Armstrong
Imagination quotes by Henry James
#195. She was a young person of many theories; her imagination was remarkably active. It had been her fortune to possess a finer mind than most of the persons among whom her lot was cast; to have a larger perception of surrounding facts, and to care for knowledge that was tinged with the unfamiliar...It may be affirmed without delay that She was probably very liable to the sin of self-esteem; she often surveyed with complacency the field of her own nature; she was in the habit of taking for granted, on scanty evidence, that she was right; impulsively, she often admired herself...Every now and then she found out she was wrong, and then she treated herself to a week of passionate humility. After this she held her head higher than ever again; for it was of no use, she had an unquenchable desire to think well of herself. She had a theory that it was only on this condition that life was worth living; that one should be one of the best, should be conscious of a fine organization, should move in the realm of light, of natural wisdom, of happy impulse, of inspiration gracefully chronic. #Quote by Henry James
Imagination quotes by S.A. Tawks

Imagination quotes by Peter Ackroyd

Imagination quotes by John Boyne
#198. Bruno opened his eyes in wonder at the things he saw. In his imagination he had tough that all the huts were full of happy families, some of whom sat outside on rocking chairs in the evening and told stories about how things were so much better when they were children and they'd had nowadays. He thought that all the boys and girls who lived there would be in different groups, playing tennis or football, skipping and drawing out squares for hopscotch on the ground.
As it turned out, all the things he thought might be there-wern't.' -The boy in the striped Pajamas #Quote by John Boyne
Imagination quotes by Alfred Hitchcock
#199. A woman, I always say, should be like a good suspense movie: The more left to the imagination, the more excitement there is. This should be her aim - to create suspense, to let a man discover things about her without her having to tell him. #Quote by Alfred Hitchcock
Imagination quotes by Edwidge Danticat
#200. That experience of touching down in a totally foreign place is like having a blank canvas: You begin with nothing, but stroke by stroke you build a life. This process requires everything great art requires-risk-tasking, hope, a great deal of imagination, all the qualities that are the building blocks of art. You must be able to dream something nearly impossible and toil to bring it into existence. #Quote by Edwidge Danticat
