A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on concept, image, imagination, and stability

Perhaps it is even a good idea to stir up a rivalry between conceptual and imaginative activity. In any case, one will encounter nothing but disappointments if he intends to make them cooperate. The image can not provide matter for a concept. By giving stability to the image, the concept would stifle its life.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)
