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?!
What quote or life lesson has changed the way you think?
