“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
This is a part of a networking activity between bloggers. This particular activity involves quotations. Read on and I’m pretty sure you will get it.
As an educator, this is a quote i have always held in high esteem. After all, helping young ones gain knowledge and expertise became my central life’s work. But this quote, from a man whose very name conjures intellect and achievement, caught me happily off guard.
I began to think of those who have made a mark on the world and quickly discovered that for many of these success-oriented people, imagination played a huge part in their careers.
Walt Disney, for example, showed an interest in drawing in his childhood, and by 18 was a commercial illustrator. The rest is history, as they say, but the immense impact of imagination on not only this man’s life, but also all who have been touched by his work in all its iterations, cannot be argued. Though he may have been and remains controversial, the man had a vision.
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was in a league of his own when it came to Renaissance art, sculpture, and architecture. Some even say he was the greatest artist of all time. His skills, techniques, and talent were beyond compare.
He once said, “I saw an angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” How’s that for imagination? And yet, on many occasions, he spoke of how difficult and draining the actual labor of making art could be.
Imagining, daydreaming, visualizing, whatever you want to call it, we all have it, and we all need to use it as much as possible.
