“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.”
As an author, I know how important knowledge is. Without knowledge of everything I’m writing about, without an understanding of the individuals and the time and place, my story will be confusing and shallow.
But without imagination my story can’t enter the heart of the reader. My story can’t give flight to promise and possibilities. As an author I can’t express the priceless wisdom hidden in each one of us.
Albert Einstein, a man who possessed possibly the greatest knowledge of humanity, valued imagination even higher. As a scientist he knew that imagination is the treasured source of genius for anyone who seeks to discover the secrets of the universe. And as a novelist, I know that books kindle all our imaginations, readers’ and authors’ both, as nothing else can. Imagination encircles the world.
Where will your imagination take you today?
