Daily Question: Quote Your Life


Daily Question by Thought Questions

A:

I have a huge imagination, and sometimes I am told that I need to think more realistically, and get out of my head and come back down to earth.

However, I started to feel a whole lot better about my imaginative ways when I first discovered the quote: “Imagination is the one weapon in the war against reality” by Jules de Gaultier- which also happens to be my blog’s tagline! 

There are a couple of reasons why I love this quote.  First, as a writer, imagination is key, and you can’t quite write without dreaming big and pushing the boundaries.  Secondly, reality is sometimes overwhelming, and a lot of times we can all get caught up in the bullshit that life throws at us.  Without an imagination, and a few unrealistic goals and dreams, we would forever be enslaved by the mediocre expectations and pressures that reality presents us.  

I could never imagine fully living in reality without a place to escape to in my head.  I may create unlikely situations, may expect just a little too much, and may think unrealistically about my life, but without those things, I wouldn’t be the person I am.  I also would never fight for anything I wanted, because without imagination, those goals just seem too far away and out of reach.  Imagination brings everything you want just a little closer, and besides, what’s the fun without a little illusion?!

  1. I don’t know who to attribute the quotes to, and they’re questions more than just quotes, but either way, someone, somewhere put these questions together and between the two of them, I was finally able to get around to fulfilling my dreams:
    1. “What is the one thing you’d do for free? Now, figure out how to make money off of it.”
    2. “What if anything where possible?”
