Albert Einstein:

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.

Arnold Toynbee:

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.

Blaise Pascal:

Imagination disposes of everything; it creates beauty, justice, and happiness, which are everything in this world.

Carl Sagan:

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.

Carl Sandburg:

Nothing happens unless first we dream.

Gloria Steinem:

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.

John Lennon:

Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.

Lauren Bacall:

Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.

Nikos Kazantzakis:

By believing passionately in something that does not yet exist, we create it.

Robert Fulghum:

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.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

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.
