There is no real reality to a really imagined life any more.
If beggars do not hate the rest of us, they are even more abject than I had imagined.
Life is much shorter than I imagined it to be.

I think the new generation is much more demanding about respect for the environment than we have ever imagined.
From the beginning, I imagined I would have a long work life.
To hear of a thousand deaths in war is terrible, and we 'know' that it is. But as it registers on our hearts, it is not more terrible than one death fully imagined.

Now, in reality, the world have paid too great a compliment to critics, and have imagined them to be men of much greater profundity then they really are.
I kind of blossomed backwards. I got cancer, fell in love and have a magical life. I never imagined it would happen that way, but you just go with the flow, right?

It's a perfect genre in which to explore hard issues of good and evil, a mirror that allows the reader to see both the good and not so good in themselves.
This whole career has been way more than I ever even imagined or dreamed.
