Do we want blanks, asterisks and exclamation marks which people can fill in with their own imaginations, or are we prepared and strong enough to tolerate, even if we do not approve, the strong Anglo-Saxon, realistic and vivid language?
Let them perish through their own imaginations.
Around the country, ideas that originated on the hard right or in the fevered imaginations of conspiracy theorists are finding their way into the mainstream. In a number of cases, these ideas have become commonplace in American minds.chip berlet
Yet, if such a being, who reversed the maxim nihil humani me alienum puto [nothing human is foreign to me], cannot be loved, as little can he be abhorred or despised. He was, in spite of the atrophy or non development of many of the faculties which are found in those in whom the "elements are kindly mixed," as truly a genius as the mere poets, painters, and musicians, with small intellects and hearts and large imaginations, to whom the world is so willing to bend the knee. He is more to be wondered at than blamed.henry cavendish
We find rhetorical situations everywhere in life, and only our imaginations can get us out of them.Northrop Frye
I loved it. We would rehearse in this dark theatre, unaware of the sunny day outside, and be immersed in the magic of creating something from our imaginations.elaine paige
The world would never amount to a hill of beans if people didn't use their imaginations to think of the impossible.Pete Seeger
Progress toward a more abundant material life does not come like manna from heaven, however. My message certainly is not one of complacency. The ultimate resource is people — especially skilled, spirited, and hopeful young people endowed with liberty — who will exert their wills and imaginations for their own benefit and inevitably benefit the rest of us as well.julian simon
Little men with little minds and little imaginations go through life in little ruts, smugly resisting all changes which would jar their little worlds.zig ziglar
In our imaginations the adults of our childhood remain extreme, essential — we might say radical since they are the roots that fed luxuriant later systems. Those first bohemians, for instance, stay operatic in memory even though were we to meet them today — well, what would we think, we who've elaborated our eccentricities with a patience, a professionalism they never knew?Edmund White
Now, we are agreed, I and my destinies. The total world, Above, below, whate'er is seen or known, And all that men, and all that gods enact, Hopes, fears, imaginations, purposes; With joy, and pain, and every pulse that beats In the great body of the universe, I give to the eternal sisterhood, To make my peace withal! And cast this husk, This hated, mangled, and dishonour'd carcase Into the balance; so have I redeem'd My proper birthright, even the changeless mind, The imperishable essence uncontroll'd.hartley coleridge
Those who present directly and immediately the new forms and symbols are the artists the dramatists, the musicians, the painters, the dancers, the poets, and those poets of the religious sphere we call saints. They portray the new symbols in the form of images poetic, aural, plastic, or dramatic, as the case may be. They live out their imaginations.rollo may
This world is but canvas to our imaginations.
The most common human act that writing a novel resembles is lying. The working novelist lies daily, very complexly, and at great length. If not for our excessive vanity and our over-active imaginations , novelists might be unusually difficult to deceive .
Ballet 's image of perfection is fashioned amid a milieu of wracked bodies, fevered imaginations , Balkan intrigue and sulfurous hatreds where anything is likely, and dancers know it.
Learn to teach the children to look at this world as a beautiful symbol of Jesus; every thing, Jesus; Christ, all; Christ, in all. So shall you educate the imaginations of the children to receive, and their memories to retain and to use, that Christian truth; and you yourself shall be lifted up, as on angel's wings, to see with John things which are unspeakable, but which the sanctified imagination realizes.
All children start their school careers with sparkling imaginations, fertile minds, and a willingness to take risks with what they think.Ken Robinson
There are two worlds; the world that we can measure with line and rule, and the world that we feel with our hearts and imaginations.leigh hunt
imaginations and illusions are always so much more powerful and bigger than this mediocre and boring thing called reality.gottfried helnwein
