~ Marcus Fabius Quintilianus, circa 65 A.D.

“And as imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown, the poet’s  pen turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothings a local habitation  and a name.”

~ William Shakespeare

“The imagination is the spur of delights…all depends upon it, it is the mainspring of everything; now, is it not by the means of the imagination one knows joy?  Is it not of the imagination that the sharpest pleasures arise?”

~ Marquis DeSade
