We might neglect our future selves because of some failure of belief or imagination. ~ Derek Parfit
Self Imagination quotes by Derek Parfit
The imagination is not an escape, but a return to the richness of our true selves; a return to reality. ~ George MacKay
Self Imagination quotes by George MacKay
The great majority of the things we now make ourselves panicked about are self-created 'dangers' that exist almost entirely in our own imaginations. ~ Albert Ellis
Self Imagination quotes by Albert Ellis
It was through reading that I discovered the crucial, even sacrosanct place the rituals of drinking held in the American imagination - the ingenious way alcohol seemed to lubricate everything from onerous chitchat to self-conscious sexual advances. ~ Daphne Merkin
Self Imagination quotes by Daphne Merkin
By travelling across frontiers, on horseback and in the imagination, Montaigne invited us to to exchange local prejudices and the self division they induced for less constraining identities as citizens of the world. ~ Alain De Botton
Self Imagination quotes by Alain De Botton
One function of the imagination in autobiographical writing is to allow the writer to try out different versions of the self. ~ Marilyn Chandler McEntyre
Self Imagination quotes by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre
The dream world, the true freedom of the imagination, does not open to self-conscious manipulation. ~ Wendy Beckett
Self Imagination quotes by Wendy Beckett
There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition. ~ Umberto Eco
Self Imagination quotes by Umberto Eco
All this has been created from self-fault and self-imagination! ~ Dada Bhagwan
Self Imagination quotes by Dada Bhagwan
If psychedelics are exopheromones that dissolve the dominant ego, then they are also enzymes that synergize the human imagination and empower language. They cause us to connect and reconnect the contents of the collective mind in ever more implausible, beautiful, and self-fulfilling ways. ~ Terence McKenna
Self Imagination quotes by Terence McKenna
The idea of self is dependent upon attraction, aversion and memory. Memory is simply a serial account of attractions and aversions that don't exist now except in imagination. ~ Frederick Lenz
Self Imagination quotes by Frederick Lenz
If you sit down and just keep quiet ... you are in the state of Self-Awareness..keeping quiet means being without any techniques, effort or intention to meditate ... not following the thought stream ... not pursuing the senses, no imagination ... s uch an intense Self-focusing comes without any effort ... then, by itself ... out of nowhere, wisdom and insights come ... ~ Mooji
Self Imagination quotes by Mooji
To be willing to live within the imagination is to commit oneself to the gathering together of the pieces that might begin to form a self. To avoid this territory is to avoid the encounters that might validate, inform, or enhance one's experience. ~ Deena Metzger
Self Imagination quotes by Deena Metzger
Macbeth's self-justifications were feeble - and his conscience devoured him. Yes, even Iago was a little lamb too. The imagination and the spiritual strength of Shakespeare's evildoers stopped short at a dozen corpses. Because they had no ideology. ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Self Imagination quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
An act of imagination is an act of self-acceptance. ~ Richard Hugo
Self Imagination quotes by Richard Hugo
It seems to me that this whole alone is worthy of the deeper sort of love; and that there is peace, freedom, I might say a kind of salvation, in turning one's affections outward toward this one God, rather than inwards on one's self, or on humanity, or on human imaginations and abstractions - the world of the spirits. ~ Robinson Jeffers
Self Imagination quotes by Robinson Jeffers
Sometimes, surely, truth is closer to imagination or to intelligence, to love than to fact? To be accurate is not to be right. ~ Shirley Hazzard
Self Imagination quotes by Shirley Hazzard
Bhutan does seem a bit unreal at times. Hardly anybody in the U.S. knows where it is. I have friends who still think the entire country is a figment of my imagination. When I was getting ready to move there, and I told people I was going to work in Bhutan, they'd inevitably ask, "Where's Butane?"
It is near Africa," I'd answer, to throw them off the trail. "It's where all the disposable lighters come from."
They'd nod in understanding. ~ Linda Leaming
Self Imagination quotes by Linda Leaming
Be creative. Unlock your imagination. Open your noggin. Do anything. ~ Scott Schafer
Self Imagination quotes by Scott Schafer
I think life is about having the mixture of the curiosity of an older person and the imagination of a child. ~ Daphne Guinness
Self Imagination quotes by Daphne Guinness
CLOSE your eyes, SEE for yourself.
With your minds eye anything is possible, it is where the magic of Ideas, Imagination and Visualization come alive to inspire us to live our dreams or to heal ourselves ~ Hazel Butterworth
Self Imagination quotes by Hazel Butterworth
Nothing can be colder than his head, when the lightnings of his imagination are playing in the sky. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Self Imagination quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
His manner showed a curious mixture of longing and enthusiasm, which is to say that his enthusiasms were always of a wistful sort, and his longings, always enthusiastic. He was delighted by things of an improbable or impractical nature, which he sought out with the open-hearted gladness of a child at play. When he spoke, he did so originally, and with an idealistic agony that was enough to make all but the most rigid of his critics smile; when he was silent, one had the sense, watching him, that his imagination was nevertheless usefully occupied, for he often sighed, or nodded, as though in agreement with an interlocutor whom no one else could see. ~ Eleanor Catton
Self Imagination quotes by Eleanor Catton
Imagination is everything ~ Albert Einstein
Self Imagination quotes by Albert Einstein
The world an author creates and the characters that inhabit it may come from her imagination alone, but few authors can wrestle the story that emerges into shape without help. ~ Tammara Webber
Self Imagination quotes by Tammara Webber
The sociological imagination refers to the ability of some to learn - often with good luck or coaching or perhaps with formal schooling - to realize that, just as often, one's personal troubles are in fact public issues. ~ Charles Lemert
Self Imagination quotes by Charles Lemert
The close observer soon discovers that the teacher's task is not to implant facts but to place the subject to be learned in front of the learner and, through sympathy, emotion, imagination, and patience, to awaken in the learner the restless drive for answers and insights which enlarge the personal life and give it meaning. ~ Nathan M. Pusey
Self Imagination quotes by Nathan M. Pusey
The indwelling of Christ is a thought particularly fit for the children, because their large faith does not stumble at the mystery, their imagination leaps readily to the marvel, that the King Himself should inhabit a little child's heart. ~ Charlotte Mason
Self Imagination quotes by Charlotte Mason
This is a study of global interconnection, not only to the degree that the infrastructure and cultural flows of globalisation enable the kinds of imaginings and interactions I explore in the pages that follow, but equally in subjective perceptions of being connected to others, both far back in time and widely around the globe. ~ Naomi Leite
Self Imagination quotes by Naomi Leite
What, then, would the effect be if we were to dive even more deeply into Jesus's teaching and life and work? What if we were to be so immersed in his promises and summonses, his counsels and encouragements, that they dominated our inner life, capturing our imagination, and simply bubbled out spontaneously when we faced some challenge? How would we live if we instinctively, almost unconsciously, knew Jesus's mind and heart regarding things that confronted us? When you received criticism, you would never be crushed, because Jesus's love and acceptance of you is so deeply "in there." When you gave criticism, you would be gentle and patient, because your whole inner world would be saturated by a sense of Jesus's loving patience and gentleness with you. ~ Timothy Keller
Self Imagination quotes by Timothy Keller
The goal is not to speculate on what might happen, but to imagine what you can make happen. ~ Gary Hamel
Self Imagination quotes by Gary Hamel
Creative visualization may be described as an extended meditation session that reaches beyond passive contemplation and achieves transformative action. The uses to which it may be applied are limited only by an individual's imagination. ~ Aberjhani
Self Imagination quotes by Aberjhani
In the world of imagination, all things belong. ~ Richard Hugo
Self Imagination quotes by Richard Hugo
Men endowed with a wild imagination should have, in addition, the great poetic faculty of denying our universe and its values so that they may act upon it with sovereign ease. ~ Jean Genet
Self Imagination quotes by Jean Genet
I've got research, I have my own life experience I can apply, and I have my imagination. ~ Chris Cooper
Self Imagination quotes by Chris Cooper
When our desires are fulfilled, we never fail to realize the wealth of imagination and the paucity of reality. ~ Ninon De L'Enclos
Self Imagination quotes by Ninon De L'Enclos
I don't eat healthy because I'm trying to avoid death. Death does not scare me. I am, however, terrified of dying before I am dead. I have a strong desire to make the best of the time I have here.
Living foods straight from the Earth help my body thrive, my imagination soar and my mind stay clear. It's about quality of life for me. I feel the best when I eat a diet free of pesticides, chemicals, GMOs and refined sugars.
Growing herbs and making my own medicine helps me stay connected to the Earth; hence, helping me connect with my true purpose here.

I have work to do here! I choose to leave this planet more beautiful than I found it and eating magical foods gives me the energy and inspiration I need to do my work. ~ Brooke Hampton
Self Imagination quotes by Brooke Hampton
To Vik Lovell who told me dragons did not exist, then led me to their lairs ... ~ Ken Kesey
Self Imagination quotes by Ken Kesey
It has been my personal experience that as I allow the painting to speak I become lost, it is delicious and at the same time frightening. The best ones, to me, have a life of their own. ~ Luther E. Vann
Self Imagination quotes by Luther E. Vann
Those who can't imagine change reveal the deficits of their imaginations, not the difficulty of change. ~ Nelson Mandela
Self Imagination quotes by Nelson Mandela
Life is a great adventure, darling, and problems are nothing more than opportunities to show what you can do. Show them, darling. You are young and beautiful and full of imagination. ~ Kerstin Gier
Self Imagination quotes by Kerstin Gier
It was like there was a pile of kindling that was in the back of my imagination just waiting there. Once I lit it, it just flared up and I kept getting ideas and ideas. ~ Kevin J. Anderson
Self Imagination quotes by Kevin J. Anderson
I think whatever is going on with my brain, I'm very, very - and I'm not saying this as a positive thing, it's just a fact - I'm very creative. I have a very strong imagination, and have since I was a little kid. That is where a lot of my world comes from. It's like I'm off somewhere else. And I can have a problem in life because of that, because I'm always off in some other world thinking about something else. It's constant. ~ James Gunn
Self Imagination quotes by James Gunn
Day lets her imagination free with an urban adventure that is not only fast-paced, but also erotic and addictive. [on Eve of Darkness ] ~ Sasha White
Self Imagination quotes by Sasha White
Eternity is a depth which no geometry can measure, no arithmetic calculate, no imagination conceive, no rhetoric describe. ~ Hannah More
Self Imagination quotes by Hannah More
Contemporary writers use animal-transformation themes to explore issues of gender, sexuality, race, culture, and the process of transformation...just as storytellers have done, all over the world, for many centuries past. One distinct change marks modern retellings, however, reflecting our changed relationship to animals and nature. In a society in which most of us will never encounter true danger in the woods, the big white bear who comes knocking at the door [in fairy tales] is not such a frightening prospective husband now; instead, he's exotic, almost appealing.

Whereas once wilderness was threatening to civilization, now it's been tamed and cultivated; the dangers of the animal world have a nostalgic quality, removed as they are from our daily existence. This removal gives "the wild" a different kind of power; it's something we long for rather than fear. The shape-shifter, the were-creature, the stag-headed god from the heart of the woods--they come from a place we'd almost forgotten: the untracked forests of the past; the primeval forests of the mythic imagination; the forests of our childhood fantasies: untouched, unspoiled, limitless.

Likewise, tales of Animal Brides and Bridegrooms are steeped in an ancient magic and yet powerfully relevant to our lives today. They remind us of the wild within us...and also within our lovers and spouses, the part of them we can never quite know. They represent the Others who live beside us--cat and mouse and coy ~ Terri Windling
Self Imagination quotes by Terri Windling
Like imperfect sleep which, instead of giving more strength to the head, doth but leave it the more exhausted, the result of mere operations of the imagination is but to weaken the soul. Instead of nourishment and energy she reaps only lassitude and disgust: whereas a genuine heavenly vision yields to her a harvest of ineffable spiritual riches, and an admirable renewal of bodily strength. I alleged these reasons to those who so often accused my visions of being the work of the enemy of mankind and the sport of my imagination ... . I showed them the jewels which the divine hand had left with me: - they were my actual dispositions. ~ William James
Self Imagination quotes by William James
Just a lot of 'fuck fuck fuck' over and over again? Can't you expand your range a little? Goddamn bloody arsefoam. Daddy drilling Mommy on the kitchen table. That sort of thing. Americans curse without any imagination at all. ~ Joe Hill
Self Imagination quotes by Joe Hill
Righteousness and love, law and grace, life and death, as well as time and eternity all intersect at the cross; displaying a divine wisdom that staggers the imagination and leads the humble heart to bow in thankful adoration. To understand the cross of Christ is to understand the heart of God toward a fallen world He wants to save. ~ Steven Cook
Self Imagination quotes by Steven Cook
Poetry might be more about the eternal verities, the essence of the human soul, and - although it's reductive to say so - fiction has perhaps been more about the differences between the unconstrained world of the imagination and the realities you run into, day-to-day, when you're riding your donkey. ~ Chad Harbach
Self Imagination quotes by Chad Harbach
No, of course I don't mind paying the electric bill. Do Parnell and Leah have a key?" "No, Jane was firm about that. Parnell came to me and offered to go through and get Jane's clothes and things packed away, but of course I told him no." "Oh?" "They're yours," he said simply. "Everything" - and he gave that some emphasis, or was it only my imagination - "everything in this house is yours. Parnell and Leah know about their five thousand, and Jane herself handed him the keys to her car two days before she died and let him take it from this carport, but, other than that, whatever is in this house" - and suddenly I was alert and very nearly scared - "is yours to deal with however you see fit." My eyes narrowed with concentration. What was he saying that he wasn't really saying? ~ Charlaine Harris
Self Imagination quotes by Charlaine Harris
Don't harness a child's imagination, encourage it so it knows no bounds! ~ K. Lamb
Self Imagination quotes by K. Lamb
Write what you know," my ass. Now, I'm not suggesting that you write about my ass. But although you do not, in fact, know my ass, I give you permission to write about it. And if you think you need my permission to write about my ass ("What right do I have, as a male, twenty-something, single, childfree, immigrant Indonesian Buddhist, to pretend to understand the ass of an Anglo American middle-aged married female Freethinker?") or about anything, then you lack the courage, curiosity and imagination to write good fiction, so please find something else to do. ~ Robyn Parnell
Self Imagination quotes by Robyn Parnell
Education must be aimed at creating a wider imagination in the child, not at suppressing. The child's mind must be set free. ~ Henry Williamson
Self Imagination quotes by Henry Williamson
Don't trust a brilliant idea unless it survives the hangover. ~ Jimmy Breslin
Self Imagination quotes by Jimmy Breslin
Truth derives its strength not so much from itself as from the brilliant contrast it makes with what is only apparently true. This applies especially to Chess, where it is often found that the profoundest moves do not much startle the imagination. ~ Emanuel Lasker
Self Imagination quotes by Emanuel Lasker
No one knows if something works until it actually works. That's why you must always try. ~ S.A. Tawks
Self Imagination quotes by S.A. Tawks
John, let me make one thing clear," Jim said, cutting me off in his most stern, evangelical voice. "Every man is blessed with his gifts from the Lord. One of mine happens to be a penis large enough that, if it had a penis of its own, my penis' penis would be larger than your penis." ...
... "Fuck all of you," John retorted. "You don't even exist. We're all just a figment of my cock's imagination. ~ David Wong
Self Imagination quotes by David Wong
Success is when reality catches up to your imagination. ~ Simon Sinek
Self Imagination quotes by Simon Sinek
The moment of inspiration can come from memory, or language, or the imagination, or experience - anything that makes an impression forcibly enough for language to form. ~ Carol Ann Duffy
Self Imagination quotes by Carol Ann Duffy
