Be creative with today's solutions without creating tomorrow's problems

Imagination is more important than knowledge... knowledge is limited, but imagination encircles the world. To see with one's own eyes, to feel and judge without succumbing to the suggestive power of the fashion of the day, to be able to express what one has seen and felt in a trim sentence or even in a cunningly wrought word... is that not glorious? When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come close to the conclusion that the gift of imagination has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing absolute knowledge.

Albert Einstein

Life is the future, not the past. The past can teach us, through experience, how to accomplish things in the future, comfort us with cherished memories, and provide the foundation of what has already been accomplished.

But only the future holds life. To live in the past is to embrace what is dead. To live life to its fullest, each day must be created anew. >P> As rational, thinking beings, we must use our intellect, not a blind devotion to what has come before, to make rational choices.
