Delightful Discoveries - Imagine That! 09.21.10

Today's feature is all about make-believe, so I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes about the magic and wonder of the world of make-believe that exists in our imagination. Enjoy!

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create. ~ Albert Einstein

Know you what it is to be a child?...It is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear, it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul.~ Francis Thompson

....enchanted worlds still exist because the child within us never dies. The doorways may be more obscure, but we can still seek them out. There are still noble adventures to undertake. There are still trees that speak and caverns that lead to nether realms. There will always be faeries and elves within nature because they will always be dancing within our hearts. ~Ted Andrews

Your imagination takes you to faraway mystical lands that only the heart can see...For the heart possesses the all-seeing eye that discerns the truth of life. ~ Dustin Johnson

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in. ~Rachel Carson

Seeing all possibilities, seeing all that can be done, and how it can be done, marks the power of imagination. Your imagination stands as your own personal laboratory. Here you can rehearse the possibilities, map out plans, and visualize overcoming obstacles. Imagination turns possibilities into reality. ~Unknown

Wonderful quotes. I struggle with keeping that child in me alive. I think it is because I am not around children often enough to bring me back to the playful place!
