Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create.
Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice.
Imagination disposes of everything; it creates beauty, justice, and happiness, which are everything in this world.
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
Nothing happens unless first we dream.
Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.
Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.
Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.
By believing passionately in something that does not yet exist, we create it.
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge -- myth is more potent than history -- dreams are more powerful than facts -- hope always triumphs over experience -- laughter is the cure for grief -- love is stronger than death.
Imagination is the living power and prime agent of all human perception.
This is the Rumble Chant from the book 'The Outsiders'
"I am a greaser," Sodapop chanted. "I am a JD and a hood. I blacken the name of our fair city. I beat up people. I rob gas stations. I am a menace to society. Man, do I have fun."
"Greaser. . . greaser. . . greaser. . ." Steve singsonged. "O victim of environment, underpriviledged, rotten, no count hood!"
"Juvenile delinquent you're no good!" Darry shouted.
"Get thee hence, white trash," Two-Bit said in a snobbish voice. "I am a Soc. I am the priviledged and the well-dressed. I throw beer blasts, drive fancy cars, break windows at fancy parties."
"And what do you do for fun?" I inquired in a serious, awed voice.
"I jump greasers!" Two-Bit screamed and did a cartwheel.
