Albert Einstein had an intense love affair with imagination….included in the family of imagination are intuition,curiosity,and playfulness…all of these innate qualities flow from our subconscious mind…young children naturally experience these feelings and they make up a large part of childhood joys….however this aspect of our personality is rarely nurtured perhaps because we don’t see its importance and vast potential…fortunately for Albert Einstein the qualities of imagination grew and developed regardless of social disinterest.

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.

To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.

When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.

The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.

The process of scientific discovery is, in effect, a continual flight from wonder

The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.

Never lose a holy curiosity.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

The only real valuable thing is intuition.

There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.
