    What's your opinion on this quote:
    Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
    Albert Einstein

    Cant see and have no intention to copy that. But as far as your question goes, I would say depends. But I do not believe either is more important than the other. Imagination leads to knowledge, and knowledge leads to imagination, that is how science develops. If either was lacking, we would never be able to learn more, so both are very important.

    this is the question itself, to see the image you have to actually use your imagination 'cause you (at least) I don't know what these letters and numbers mean

    the way i see it is that imagination added to knowledge is better
    but imagination by itself is less usefull than knowledge by itself

    Well I am not sure of that...knowledge in the hands of the unimaginative is worthless. Imagination in the hands of an idiot, leads to people jumping off roofs.

    Okay, I want everyone to think about this.

    Without imagination we wouldn't have any art. That would mean no novels.

    So change your vote to "Yes"

    You're just a robot if you don't have imagination, sure knowledge is way more useful (if you're not an artist) but we aren't robots. Who want's to be a boring person who only knows how to work, go home and be annoying to others...

    and you feel like people jumping off roofs is a good idea?
    i disagree that knowledge in the hands of the unimaginative is worthless. They can be very capable workers as long as they're not the ones in charge

    Both are important, if you have no knowledge, your imagination will stay as it is and improve slower.
