"There can be no passion, and by consequence no love, where there is not imagination."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."William Godwin 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."William Godwin on Dr. Seuss
"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."William Godwin 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."William Godwin on Albert Einstein
"Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?"William Godwin on Sun Tzu
"Let us not, in the eagerness of our haste to educate, forget all the ends of education."
"As the true object of education is not to render the pupil the mere copy of his preceptor, it is rather to be rejoiced in, than lamented, that various reading should lead him into new trains of thinking."
"Government will not fail to employ education, to strengthen its hands, and perpetuate its institutions."
"My thoughts will be taken up with the future or the past, with what is to come or what has been. Of the present there is necessarily no image."
"Above all we should not forget that government is an evil, a usurpation upon the private judgement and individual conscience of mankind."
