Quotations on Fantasy and Imagination




“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

                                                                        Albert Einstein

“One day, you will be old enough to start reading fairytales again.”

                                                                        C. S. Lewis



“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape? . . . If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”

                                                                      J. R. R. Tolkien


“Tales of imagination and fantasy do not only distract us from the world; rather, they also offer an opportunity to critique our lives, our politics, and our planet as a whole. Such tales are not merely fun; they are essential.”

                                                                     Charles F. French
