Einstein was one of the most prolific creators, inventors and scientists in human history. His mathematician’s mind was supercharged with creativity and allowed him to see possibilities, not limitations. He was also fueled by an insatiable appetite to discover, explore and indulge his curiousity, which manifested in a disciplined work ethic. His wisdom has never been more relevant, or useful to entrepreneurs, creators and makers. Here are 10 of his most inspirational quotes to supercharge your creativity.
1. “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
This quote perfectly captures the power of imagination, and the limitations of knowledge. In many ways, knowledge is easy to acquire; but imagination takes bravery and persistence.
2. “I very rarely think in words at all. A thought comes, and I may try to express in words afterwards.”
Einstein articulates how complex ideas can be, and how they often come in forms that are hard to translate. Part of the magic is taking these whimsical abstractions and making them into concrete ideas.
