Imagination Quotes


“Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is.” So said Francis Bacon and truer words were perhaps never spoken. It is our imagination that allows us to soar like a bird, discovering new ways to think about the world around us.

From Walt Disney to E.E. Cummings, those with the greatest imaginations have chimed in on this intriguing topic. Reference.com Definition of Imagination
