Quotations on Imagination


“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.”

                                                                  Carl Sagan



(portrait by Maurice Quentin de La Tour)


“The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.”

                                                                 Jean-Jacques Rousseau




“Love what you do and do what you love. Don’t listen to anyone else who tells you not to do it. You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the center of your life.”

                                                                 Ray Bradbury

  1. These are very important quotes, Charles.. We, as humans, would not have climbed out of the trees if it wasn’t for our developing brain conjuring up the ability to imagine. It all started with using a stick to get ants to eat. Imagine where that has taken humanity. Much of our beginning imagination began with survival and we certainly have done that. However, sometimes our imagination has conjured up the most devastating of things – like nuclear bombs. Perhaps, we need to take a step backward and not do everything our imagination delivers. In many ways, commom sense has taken a huge backseat to our most dangerous notions. Nonetheless, imagination has done the most amazing things that changed our lives for the better.

  2. Reblogged this on Once Upon a Time…. and commented:
    Chares F. French as posted, I think, three of the most influential quotes on Imagination that have initiated and produced some of the greatest works of art in writing and everything else under the sun….where would we be without it? Imagination has changed our lives in multiply directions, as in our written works of fiction, non-fiction, inventions, medicine, lifestyles, and has created more jobs than anyone could ever have Imagined, except those people that did. .
