The October 26, 1929 issue of The Saturday Evening Post features an Albert Einstein interview by George Sylvester Viereck. The following quote from that interview makes it clear that Einstein strongly believed in the power of imagination. Here’s Einstein’s response to the question, “Then you trust more to your imagination than to your knowledge?”
“I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein
