~ 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
