QUOTES THAT I LIKE:
"Imagination is the one weapon against reality."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."
"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own and you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go."
"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you!"
"The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
How do you measure imagination?
"How does one measure the imagination? The daunting nature of the subject led researchers to neglect it; a recent survey of psychology papers published between 1950 and 2000 revealed that less than 1% of them investigated aspects of the creative process. Even the evolution of this human talent was confounding. Most cognitive skills have elaborate biological histories, so their evolution can be traced over time. But not creativity - the human imagination has no clear precursors. There is no ingenuity module that got enlarged in the human cortex, or even a proto-creative impulse evident in other primates. Monkey's don't paint; chimps don't write poems; and it's the rare animal (like the New Caledonian Crow) that exhibits rudimentary signs of problem solving. The birth of creativity, in other words, arrived like any insight; out of nowhere."
