Imagination and the Search for Certainty

"There is no more dangerous illusion than the fancies by which people try to avoid illusion.  It is imagination which leads us astray; and the certainty which we seek through imagination, feeling, and taste, is one of the most dangerous sources from which fanaticism springs.”
--François Fénelon (1651-1715)
