The Power to Imagine Better





By on November 3, 2009

We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already; we have the power to imagine better.

– J. K. Rowling (http://harvardmagazine.com/go/jkrowling.html – quoted in Harry Potter and Imagination: The Way Between Worlds by Travis Prinzi, p. iv.)

  • In the context of her speech, this is directly related to a quote from Plutarch: “What we achieve inwardly will change outward reality”. An exception and inspiring speech–may those who listened have ears to hear. Thaks so much for posting the link.

  • As I noted above, I picked up the quote and link to the speech from Travis Prinzi's book. I haven't yet read or listened to the whole speech, but I definitely will.

    I'm excited to be getting into Prinzi's book. He's been an Internet friend for several years now, so I know he has done his homework and has a lot of good insights. The book was published by a small, independent press, and unfortunately is marred slightly by poor editing and typesetting, but the content is well worth getting past those flaws.

    By the way, Prinzi uses the very same Plutarch quote in his book's introduction, Fred!
