    Is Imagination better than knowledge?

    Einstein said,"Imagination is more important than knowledge." I am asking, which is better among both. Imagination is the powerful tool we have in life, but there is knowledge too, when we want to select in between, what is the more better option for us. Imagination or Knowledge?

    I agree with Einstein, not just because he's Einstein but because I have a lot of imagination. lol 

    Imagination is creativity and with creativity, there is absolute knowledge because you are using more resources in your mind than simple knowledge.  In other words, creative people think outside the box, while people without creativity or imagination are limited.

    Knowledge is great, but imagination can go a long way, especially when it comes to writing a hub.

      Exaclty, I agreed with this Goody, when it comes to knowledge, its all about data and encyclopedias, but imagination is thinking in a different way in which no one ever think!

    Imagination comes before knowledge. Everything was first imagined. Also imagination has no rules. It can even overturn previous knowledge with new and better ideas.

      That's true and proved by history. We can also say that knowledge is the outcome of imagination. Kindly correct me if I am wrong.

    Imagination is a function of originality and creativity, and by definition it reaches beyond existing conventional knowledge parameters. When an artist, writer, musician, inventor, scientific researcher, etc. dreams up a new vision and pursues it to a tangible end product, then that process will have created a new way of doing things. Knowledge is a noble gift to the evolution of humanity, whereas imagination is a noble gift to the evolution of knowledge itself.
