“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Albert Einstein
In a wooded area not far from home is an enchanted forest.
It is the place where fairies and pixies live and play.
Sceptical? I don’t really blame you. We’ve been conditioned to think that such things as enchanted forests exist only in fairy tales or tucked away in our imagination for no one else to see. As kids we were taught that imagination had a time and place, usually an hour or so set aside during creative writing class. Imagination was encouraged, but only if it didn’t interfere in our “real” work, which had nothing to do with using one’s imagination.
I love the above quote by Einstein, one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century. Now if someone with Einstein’s intelligence acknowledges the importance of imagination, deeming it more important than knowledge then, who is this writer to argue?
I can’t help thinking/imagining that this small wooded area has the potential to make it into a work of fiction one day.
These rock formations are indeed unique to this area, and whenever I come across these photos I can’t help but let my imagination soar.
Do you agree with Einstein that imagination is more important than knowledge?
