I have been nominated for this quotation challenge, to come up with three quotations. This is no small potatoes, as the field is filled with excellence. That means two things to me; quotes that are both brilliant and simple, because the best quotes come from brilliant minds, grounded in common sense. Here are my three quotations:
“Goodness without knowledge is weak and feeble, yet knowledge without goodness is dangerous, and both united form the noblest character and lay the the surest foundation of usefulness to mankind.” -John Phillips-
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” -Albert Einstein-
“Color is a power that directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard. The artist is the hand that plays.” -Vassily Kandinsky-

You are welcome, and these are wonderful quotations!
I particularly love the quote by Einstein. Even if I’m not the smartest person in the room, I have buckets of imagination!
I like all three, but relate to the second one best. Imagination goes so much farther when knowledge is combined with it. Knowledge is like what we used to call, “book smart.” Imagination takes a certain intrinsic understanding within oneself to go beyond the problem and come up with multiple solutions, go beyond beauty and display it, go beyond playing notes, but soar and lift everyone to another level. These are gifts which are amazing and blessings from above. Lovely choices and hope it was okay to focus on Albert Einstein who really was a genius extraordinaire! Happy Sunday to you, Jennie!
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
Deeper meaning resides in the fairy tales told to me in childhood than in the truth that is taught by life. -J. F. C. von Schiller. I have no idea who that person is, but I came across this quote over the weekend, IMMEDIATELY thought of you, then in checking my emails, saw that you had this post of quotes, and knew I had to share.
Thank you, Michelle!
All three quotes are fabulous. Thank you 🙂
You are welcome!
