We are what we imagine.  Our very existence consists in our imagination of ourselves.  Our best destiny is to imagine, at least, completely, who and what, and that we are.  The greatest tragedy that can befall us is to go unimagined.

Somehow, the magic of childhood lies in its formlessness, its squishiness — the ease with which emotions surge into one another and up to the surface, how subtly imagination washes over reality.  Nothing’s hardened yet.  It’s all still beautifully weak, for better and for worse.  And what is childlike about any of us is what has managed to stay that malleable.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.  That myth is more potent than history.  That dreams are more powerful than facts.  That hope always triumphs over experience.  That laughter is the only cure for grief.  And I believe that love is stronger than death.
