People’s perception - ‘we need a teacher’ in order to learn anything and everything, and I wonder and know that Einstein, Bell, Wright Brother’s and many more DID NOT have ‘a teacher’ when they discover what they discovered!
They were born with a set of brain just like us....... but they DARE to dream and applied what their IMAGINATION tells them! 
And with this thought, I asked again - why can’t we read the Quran for ourselves and understand it the way God wants us to because as we ALL know that that God will show us the way, just like He did with Einstein for example. 
I know for sure that God speaks to us from our imagination and knowledge comes from God through our imagination.

Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity. 
Imagination is the voice of daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that. He dared to imagine everything.

 Imagination rules the world, and will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere. People who lean on logic and philosophy and rational exposition end by starving the best part of the mind.

All men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers. 
I believe in the imagination. 
What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see. 
I believed in myself. 
I never imagined myself as just an ordinary player. 
I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty. 
I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.

I doubt that the imagination can be suppressed. 
If you truly eradicated it in a child, we would grow up to be an eggplant. All men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers. 
All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.

 Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed.

I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. 
Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities. I used to lie in bed in my flat and imagine what would happen if there was a zombie attack.

I never did very well in History or Maths - I could never seem to persuade the teacher that I hadn't meant my answers literally. I like painting and designing things or building stuff, I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.

Imagination and fiction make up more than three quarters of our real life. 
If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking. 
If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever. Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than in the young.

Live out of your imagination, not your history. One is never fortunate or as unfortunate as one imagines. Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake. The man who has no imagination has no wings.
