I learned in the computer game business early on that all senses are not equal. The best example is, you're listening to a radio play and you're driving down the road, and suddenly you realize you haven't seen the road in five minutes. It's because your visual cortex has been partying with your imagination, basically.
Most cocktails containing liquor are made today with gin and ingenuity. In brief, take an ample supply of the former and use your imagination. For the benefit of a minority, it is courteous to serve chilled fruit juice in addition to cocktails made with liquor.
Irma S. Rombauer
I've been acting my whole life. I have this huge imagination! I'm a dancer and my mom's a dance teacher, and I was always performing and entertaining people. I'd go to see live theatre or a movie, and I'd become the main character for a few days afterwards. I loved being somebody new for a temporary amount of time.
As great scientists have said and as all children know, it is above all by the imagination that we achieve perception, and compassion, and hope.
Ursula K. Le Guin
When something is such a creative medium as the web, the limits to it are our imagination.
I have no idea why I write. The old standards are: I like to express my feelings, stretch my imagination, earn money.
S. E. Hinton
Anything you put your mind to and add your imagination into can make your life a lot better and a lot more fun.
It's a slight stretch of the imagination but most people are alike in most ways so I've never had any trouble identifying with the character that I'm playing.
If you're trying to learn how to act from a class, you're analyzing the teachers' movements and their intricacies, and it becomes like a pantomime of you wanting to be them, and that's wrong. Literature is an easier way to study acting, because then you can take any kind of spin. It's your own imagination, and your own version of it.
I always appreciated the magnitude of my mother's imagination. She always saw beauty in what was broken, and she'd preserve it.
What I love most about animation is, it's a team sport, and everything we do is about pure imagination.
I don't necessarily start with the beginning of the book. I just start with the part of the story that's most vivid in my imagination and work forward and backward from there.
As a boy, the very words 'Liberty Bell' and 'Independence Hall' fired my imagination and made a profound and lasting impression on my mind. Throughout my struggle to secure national freedom for China, I have continuously dreamed of the day when she would assume the full stature of an independent, democratic nation.
There are two 'Snow White' movies coming out for the same reason that you remember back in the day there was 'Armageddon' and then 'Deep Impact.' You know, 'Andromeda Strain' and then 'Outbreak.' Like, all of those things. It's common because basically studios have no imagination in making the decisions.
I grew up in the '80s where there's a lot of these kind of post-apocalyptic, post-comet, post-whatever it was, so that always captured my imagination a lot as a little kid, that idea of getting access to secret places and being able to roam around where you're not supposed to.
I love the paranormal, because there, every genre I write can become one beacon for my imagination.
Nothing is more fearful than imagination without taste.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Imagination is a poor matter when it has to part company with understanding.
Were it not for imagination a man would be as happy in arms of a chambermaid as of a duchess.
He is the true enchanter, whose spell operates, not upon the senses, but upon the imagination and the heart.
When I started the Imagination Library in my hometown, I never dreamed that one day we would be helping Scottish kids.
I suppose I'm proudest of my novels for what's imagined in them. I think the world of my imagination is a richer and more interesting place than my personal biography.
Reason respects the differences, and imagination the similitudes of things.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
'Fright Night' I can just about deal with. Because the original is such a 1980s extravaganza. Which is a good thing. Obviously. But something like 'The Others' or anything psychological: I'm no good with that. I don't like it when there's space for me to use my imagination.
My imagination makes me human and makes me a fool; it gives me all the world, and exiles me from it.
Ursula K. Le Guin
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
