“When I examine myself and my methods of though, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.” -Albert Einstein
This quote also:
Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust – we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.
-Albert Einstein

  1. I always thought of this quote as a paraphrased version,
    “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
    I think he was trying to imply that despite his unsurpassed gift for thinking in an abstract way that has brought some of the biggest breakthroughs, he appreciated the more common gift of human imagination moreso.
    I could be wrong, though
