“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” ~ Einstein
Be a realist, but don’t lose your imagination. Even an uber realist like Einstein was a proponent of being imaginative. Reality sometimes turns out to be much stranger than we think it is.
Today’s normal is yesterday’s strange. Strange or unusual things eventually seem normal after we get used to them.
