A book needs us desperately. We have to pull it off the shelf. We have to open it up. We have to turn the pages, one by one. We even have to use our imagination to make it work. So, suddenly, that book is not just a book; it’s our book. Mo Willems (Why Books? essay)

The pictures are not very defined because one wants to be able to have the imagination playing over them. Quentin Blake (video)

Because they have so little, children must rely on imagination rather than experience. Eleanor Roosevelt

“I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a king of infinite space…”—Shakespeare
