“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.”
~ Albert Einstein

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”
~ Plutarch

“Reason is plodding.  Imagination strikes sparks and shakes free particles of science toward which reason plods.  Whether, without the anticipation capabilities of imagination, reason would even know in which direction to plod is doubtful.”
~ Dennis L. Sepper

“... [the transcendental functions of imagination] are a secret art residing in the depths of the human soul, an art whose true stratagems we shall hardly ever divine from nature and lay bare before ourselves.”
~ Immanuel Kant

“Another function of the great poet which goes back to the mythic origins of his craft is to be a prophet.  The strength of his prophecy lies more in the emotional and spiritual preparation which he gives to later generations than in the prediction of events.”
~ William Anderson
“Money doesn’t bring happiness and creativity.  Your creativity and happiness brings money.”
~ Sam Rosen

“Intuition is not contrary to reason, but outside the province of reason.”
~ Carl Gustav Jung

“Once you do something you love, you never have to work again.”
~ Willie Hill

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.  Imagination is more important than knowledge.  Knowledge is limited.  Imagination encircles the world.”
~ Albert Einstein

“The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”
~ Henry Miller

“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius.  Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.”
~ Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“The trick for the Artist is to present his material so that it doesn’t put a ring around itself and stand there as separate from you, the observer, and that ‘ah-ha!’ that you get when you see an artwork that really hits you is, ‘I am that!  I am the very radiance and energy that is talking to me through this thing.’”
~ Joseph Campbell

“If you watch what happens in your imagination while you’re speaking, you’ll see brief bits of dream all the time.”
~ Jordan B. Peterson

“It is hardly surprising, then, that its functions are capable of being applied methodically and systematically to everything that appears, because imagination is founded on and supported by the nature of images and appearances and the proportions that govern and hold among them.”
