"Writing gives me the opportunity to explore ideas, play with language, solve problems, use my imagination, and draw on my own childhood."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."Jack Prelutsky on Albert Einstein
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."Jack Prelutsky on Dr. Seuss
"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."Jack Prelutsky on Albert Einstein
"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty."Jack Prelutsky on Albert Einstein
"Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?"Jack Prelutsky on Sun Tzu
"Then I decided to draw from and on my own imagination, and everything came out perfect."
"We all need ways to express ourselves, and poetry is one of mine."
"Poetry seems to sink into us the way prose doesn't. I can still quote verses I learned when I was very young, but I have trouble remembering one line of a novel I just finished reading."
"Otherwise I don't read much adult poetry at all, because I'm not smart enough and mostly I don't get it."
"I look for poetry in English because it's the only language I read."
