Having Vision

“Expanse”| Anthony Satori

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

— Albert Einstein

The way that Einstein is using the word “imagination” in this context does not mean “making things up,” or abandoning the intellect. Quite to the contrary, imagination, in its highest form, means having vision. And vision is the beginning, and constant companion, of any meaningful line of thought, inquiry, or pursuit. Vision is an appreciation for that which is not immediately evident, but which may be revealed through study, synthesized through creative, even abstract thinking, and divined through both introspection and careful attention to the world around us. Vision is the liberation of oneself to imagine what could be — and then to pursue that higher good, that more beautiful reality, with creativity, dedication, and enthusiasm.
