“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”
Albert Einstein said that. I have a t-shirt with a picture of him and the first part of the quote on it. It’s old and has rips in it. I can’t throw it away.
Most of my interests are right brain and imagination driven. Music, art, literature. As a music major in college, I focused on composition. I never became a world famous composer, but I have had pieces performed.
When it comes to art, I’m not a natural. I do however get inspiration from the masters, which carries over into other areas of my life. I tend to favor the more abstract and innovative. And I have a deep fondness for the Impressionists.
I have enough imagination to never be bored. I know so many people who don’t understand that concept.
You have to rely on yourself, and not others, for life enrichment. Even if I know I might not be good at something, I’ll still make an attempt. Being open to new concepts and ideas helps to become a more well-rounded person.
The more you use your imagination, the more it grows. I’ve accomplished things that I thought would never be possible, just by using a little imagination and making an attempt.
