E is for Einstein

There was a great deal more to this man than wild hair and physics. In fact, he came up with one of my favourite quotes about creativity:

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand."

Imagination takes me places that my life does not. I visit planets, lead revolutions and hang my paintings in the kinds of galleries frequented by people with deep pockets. My imagination has the capability of doubling two and getting five. It knows no bounds. It believes in anything it chooses.

Imagination is a powerful thing, which when mixed with its cousin intuition, opens the door to creativity. From this heady mix have come pieces of music powerful enough to bring you to tears, creatures the like of which we have never seen, heroes and villains and technology that blows your mind!

Day 5 of the Blogging A-Z. I'm enjoying this :)


  1. I love the quote from Einstein! I agree, knowledge and imagination are equally essential for progress to be made. :)

    Nice to meet you through the A to Z!

  2. Absolutely love Einstein. Great quote choices...and there are so many to choose from. I agree with you and Einstein about the gift of intuition and imagination. I'm your newest follower :)
