Inspiration Captured In Time

1. “I believe that Imagination is stronger than Knowledge. That Myth is more potent than Reality That Dreams are more powerful than Facts That Hope always triumphs over Experience. That Laughter is the only cure for Grief And I believe that Love is stronger than Death.” ~ Robert Fulgham~

2. “Reality, looked at steadily, is unbearable.” ~C.S. Lewis~

3. “You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” ~Mark Twain~

4. “A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.” ~William Shakespeare~

5. “Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.” ~Carl Sagan~

6. “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” ~Hilary Cooper~

7. “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” ~Albert Einstein~

8. “…his raptures were,
all air, and fire, which made his verse clear
For that fine madness still he did retain
Which rightly should possess a poet’s brain.”
~Michael Drayton~

9. “Poets: have been singularly creatures of passion…emotions is the condition of their existence; passion is the element of their Being…the intensifying power of such a state if passion must also be remembered, for emotion of itself naturally heightens all the faculties, and genius burns the brighter in its own flames” ~George Edward Woodbury~

10. “Men have called me mad, but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence…whether much that is glorious–whether all that is profound–does not spring from disease of thought…” ~ Edgar Allan Poe~

11. “words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.”
~J.K. Rowling~

12. “…and books, they offer one hope – that a whole universe might open up from between the covers, and falling into that new universe, one is saved.” ~Anne Rice~

13. “F.E.A.R = F*ck. Everything. And. Run.” ~Anonymous.~

14. “You know that place between sleep and awake; that place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I will always love you. That’s where I will be waiting.” ~J.M. Barrie~ Peter Pan

15. “Time sets the stage; fate writes the script; but only we may choose our character.” ~Liam Thomas Ryder~

16. “It depends on the work. If it is part of your soul and a need that must be expressed who can turn their back on such wanted urges. Maybe a balanced life isn’t everything. Vincent Van Gogh had a calling as did Emily Dickinson and other artists who create out of necessity for their art because in not doing so would remove the life within them.” ~Jennifer Kiley~

17. “Enlightenment is not imagining figures of light but making the darkness conscious.” ~ Carl Gustav Jung~

18. “When I was five years old, my mother told me that happiness was always the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. And I told them they didn’t understand life. ~John Lennon~

19. “…why poetry exists. Poetry is the heart’s undying effort to say that for which the mind has no words. Sometimes, on rare, beautiful occasions, a truth that might so elude the reader (and the author) of a thousand-page tome may be unveiled in as little as seventeen syllables. That is the beauty of poetry. ~unknown~

20. “It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think our present existence, as a dream.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe ~

It was quite difficult to narrow down to 20. Originally, the list was going to be the Top Ten. It was a challenge for a fellow blogger for his site the bipolar place 1. It inspired me to post on the secret keeper. J.K. ps. need to up date my quotations page. I have found so many since its creation.

    • First I want to say thank you and welcome back. It was a difficult list to put together. Challenging all my favorite quotes and limiting them to only twenty. It is one of my obsessions. I love great quotes and collecting them. There is something very special in what can be said in usually so few words. They hold a similarity to poetry in that they can hold such profound meaning. The first one, I feel should reflect everyones philosophy of life. They all carry some sort of special meaning to me. I am pleased you find them to be “such brilliant words of inspiration.” I think the ones who wrote them feel honoured by your words, also. If they could speak for themselves at this moment. Yet, they do in their words, don’t they! J.K. ps. “A good friend is hard to find, hard to lose, and impossible to forget.” ~ anonymous ~
