I've done a lot of bad things. Use your imagination.
We especially need imagination in science.
Believing you're something that you're not excites the mind and the imagination. And it's hopeful.
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.
I've spent my life butting my head against other people's lack of imagination.
While the sciences are hugely important, let us not leave behind a child's imagination.
The higher the artist, the fewer the gestures. The fewer the tools, the greater the imagination. The greater the will, the greater the secret failure.

It takes as much imagination to create debt as to create income.
I have a very vivid imagination.

There's a logic today that places a greater value on celebrity the less it is accompanied by actual achievement. I don't think it's possible to touch people's imagination today by aesthetic means.
J. G. Ballard
The march of invention has clothed mankind with powers of which a century ago the boldest imagination could not have dreamt.

The theater itself is a lie. Its deaths are mere special effects. Its tales never happened. Even the histories are distorted for dramatic effect. The theater is unnatural, a place of imagination. But the theater tells the audience something true: that the world requires judgments.
There's a particular sensitivity required to be an artist, and a certain vulnerability, perhaps, and also, somewhere between, you're in your body a lot, too.
