Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world and all there ever will be to know and understand.
“Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But since no one was listening, everything must be said again.”
― André Gide
What is done becomes undone. He also enumerates its emotion. If you listen to it, it is romantic but mournful, sophisticated and worldly; it is elegant. And he pulls these notions apart; he tears the elegance to its limits, he rejects the mournfulness as redundant and he drives the otherworldliness to outer-worldliness.
