It isn't necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.
Frank Zappa

I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art.
Khalil Gibran

A man may imagine things that are false, but he can only understand things that are true, for if the things be false, the apprehension of them is not understanding.
Isaac Newton

I am accustomed to sleep and in my dreams to imagine the same things that lunatics imagine when awake.

I am with Zappa, paperwork combined with bureaucracy will do it.

RE: quotes 5 - 3 -13

There is more paperwork in this "paperless" society, it's a paradox that makes me crazy sometimes.
On a more serious level, I like all three quotes following.

RE: quotes 5 - 3 -13

I like all of the quotes for today. Actually they made me smile because I think they reflect today's society.
Frank Zappa ,Khalil Gibran, isaac Newton and Rene Descartes , all in one post. Lol, I think we'll survive today's issues.
Thanks Don.
