1. ” Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein said, “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” I like the quote very much, and it reminds me of how the Commission must approach its oversight mission going forward.
Einstein famously said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
The ability to imagine things pervades our entire existence. It influences everything we do, think about and create. It leads to elaborate theories, dreams and inventions in any profession from the realms of academia to engineering and the arts.
We can ‘t actually teach how to have imagination — we can only teach using our imagination . Creativity is a process that can be learned, but the fuel that fires it—our imagination —is a personal voyage of discovery that we can encourage. Students have to use and trust their own imaginations in order to exercise them.

“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” No substantive evidence exists suggesting Einstein made this statement, though it (as O’Toole wrote on his website) has been attributed to him in at least one self-help book.

Einstein’s autopsy was conducted in the lab of Thomas Stoltz Harvey. Harvey took the brain anyway, without permission from Einstein or his family. Shortly after Einstein’s death in 1955, Harvey removed and weighed the brain at 1230g.
Intelligence has been defined in many ways: the capacity for logic, understanding, self-awareness, learning, emotional knowledge, reasoning, planning, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving.
