  • Which of these quotes about imagination do you like the best? Why?

“Everything you can imagine is real.” – Pablo Picasso

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” – Albert Einstein

“When I read a book, I put in all the imagination I can, so that it is almost like writing the book as well as reading it – or rather, it is like living it. It makes reading so much more exciting, but I don’t suppose many people try to do it.” – Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle
