“Live out of your imagination, not your history.” ~ Stephen Covey
“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery
“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” ~ Albert Einstein
Always when looking for quotes for these Thoughts For The Day posts, certain ones stand out to me, and I feel compelled to write about them. As I was searching for today’s quotes, I kept running across ones about Imagination. So…I got the message to make this post all about…Imagination.
The formal definition of Imagination is:
– the ability to imagine things that are not real : the ability to form a picture in your mind of something that you have not seen or experienced
– the ability to think of new things
– the act or power of forming a mental image of something not present to the senses or never before wholly perceived in reality
This is the stuff of where dreams manifested comes from. As the quote by Einstein says…logic will get us from one point to another…but it is the Imagination that creates the points to begin with. It is what makes real that which is not a reality yet.
Every idea, every success, every manifestation…begins with a thought…a thought that is born of the Imagination. Someone, somewhere…had to think it up before it could be done.
Today…let your Imagination free…and see what you can dream up! Walk through that door…
