TUESDAY, MARCH 2nd, 2010 words we love: imagination
"There is no use trying," said Alice; "One can't believe impossible things." "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
The telephone. Space travel. Automobiles. Penicillin.
Where would we be without the dreamers and inventors? It would behoove us all to take the Queen's advice, for there is magic and beauty in believing the impossible. (Particularly timely, this quote, as D.C. will pre-screen Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland THIS VERY EVENING. Now THERE'S someone with an imagination...)
This weekвЂ™s WORDS WE LOVE contest: What words inspire you to imagine? The winning entry gets a dozen Quotable Cards AND perhaps sees the winning quote memorialized on a card from our good friends who make Quotable Cards.
1. Tell us (by posting a comment here): What is your favorite quote about imagination? About believing the impossible? And to whom is it credited?
2. Enter by Friday, March 5th, at 8 pm EST.
3. Watch here for the winner, announced on Tuesday.
