imagination

A Quote by Robert Grudin on imagination, elegance, grace, beauty, pleasure, love, and work

What liberates the imagination is the sense that work in its theory and practice holds aesthetic possibilities, that jobs can be elegantly conceived and gracefully done. This sense of beauty unlocks feelings of pleasure and love and breaks down the barrier between worker and work and commit to work not merely the "thinking" consciousness but the full resources of mind.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on beauty, creativity, imagination, ideas, and greatness

The recalling of beautiful things, whether they are your own experiences or the acheivements of others, is a creative act. Simple ideas can be restated by rote; but profound ideas must be recreated by will and imagination.

A Quote by Wayne Dyer on imagination, creativity, goals, and success

...thinking from the end causes me to behave as if all that I'd like to create is already here. My credo is: Imagine myself to be and I shall be, and it's an image that I keep with me at all times.

A Quote by Wayne Dyer on ego, connection, separation, imagination, achievement, god, and goals

Your will is the ego part of you that believes you're separate from others, separate from what you'd like to accomplish or have, and separate from God. It also believes that you are your acquisitions, achievements, and accolades. This ego will wants you to constantly acquire evidence of your importance... On the other hand, your imagination is the concept of Spirit within you. ...with imagination, we have the power to be anything we desire to be.

A Quote by paramhansa yogananda on truth, imagination, real, origin, mind, and god

Truths are more than imagination; they are real. Yet their origin is a thought in the mind of God.

A Quote by E. Ambrose Webster on imagination, light, nature, and universe

We live in a world of color.  All nature is color: white, black, and grey do not exist except in theory; they are never seen by the eye - they could only exist in a world that was colorless.  Such a universe is beyond imagination: a world without color would be a world without light, for light and color are inseparable.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on blessings, imagination, desserts, wake up, graffiti, naming, trees, flowers, stars, travel, swans, and moon

May you eat an unfamiliar dessert in a strange land at least once every three years.

May you wake up... and start dancing while you're still half-asleep.

May you spray-paint Rilke poems as graffiti on highway overpasses...

My you learn to identify by name 20 flowers, 15 trees, 10 clouds, and one extrasolar planet...

May you dream of taking a trip to the moon in a gondola powered by firecrackers and wild swans.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on imagination, appearances, verbosity, identity, self-knowledge, and seeming

Be what you would seem to be - or if you'd like it put more simply - Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)
