What is imagination really? Maybe it’s just the little brother of Miss Creativity? I don’t know about you, but for me, this phrase by Einstein resonate: “Imagination is more important then knowledge“.  No need to be a super eccentric individual to be  imaginative (or to believe in unicorns, for that matter) … but to be able to imagine a different world and extraordinary things;  is a bit like adding color to an otherwise very grey world.

L’imagination, qu’est-ce que c’est, au juste? Peut-être est-ce juste le petit frère de Mam’zelle Créativitée? Je ne sais pas pour vous, mais pour moi, il y a une phrase d’Einstein qui m’interpelle vraiment: “L’imagination est plus importante que la connaissance“. Pas besoin d’être un individu super excentrique (ou même de croire aux licornes) … mais juste le fait d’ être en mesure d’imaginer un monde différent, et des choses extraordinaires; c’est un peu comme ajouter de la couleur à un monde quelquefois un peu trop… gris.

    Awesome job, it looks like something Eric Idle should be singing with a unicorn coming out of his top hat!
