The imagination exercises a powerful influence over every act of sense, thought, reason,
-- over every idea.
Solitude is as needful to the imagination as society is wholesome for the character.
James Russel Lowell
Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
He who has imagination without learning, has wings and no feet.
Hope is the dream of a man awake.
A strong imagination begetteth opportunity.
Michel de Montaigne
Your imagination is your preview of life's coming attractions.
Where beams of imagination play,
The memory's soft figures melt away.
Believe that you have it, and you have it.
The imagination is the secret and marrow of civilization.
Henry Ward Beecher
Imagine every day to be the last of a life surrounded with hopes, cares, anger, and fear. The hours that come unexpectedly will be so much more the grateful.
You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
