“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
“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.”
"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
"Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere."I was drawn to look at these and many more by Einstein because the first one was on Facebook as a share from Diane Widler Wenzel. I had to double check to be sure it was really from him. Too good to be true, except it is. I am a huge believer in imagination. It doesn't mean we ignore the existence of reality. It means we know how to let our minds soar free sometimes and take us into unknown realms.
Since I have long called my romances fairy tales for adults, I think there can be made an argument for their equal benefit to our continuing development of intellect as well as emotional satisfaction. ;)
