The true sign of intelligence
is not knowledge, but imagination
– Albert Einstein
Intelligence can take on many forms. Our knowledge, our wisdom, our skills, agility, understanding or judgment. But it is imagination which enables us to break out of the mould and seek life beyond the boundaries of what we already know. With curiosity, creativity and exploration, we can begin to think outside the box and seek new perspectives and possibilities. We can then create ingenious solutions to complex issues and excel in more areas of our lives.
By nurturing our imagination, we can embrace emotion and the beauty around us. We are unique and have our own ideas about life, so why not use our thoughts and inspirations to carve out a better future and envision endless possibilities and opportunities.
Our minds can give us freedom and the ability to escape into imaginative worlds. Let your mind wander and embrace the creativity, it can give you strength and enable you to shine.
Did you know...
Did you know that pigs are one of the most intelligent animals? Studies have shown them to outsmart dogs, and even 3 year old children!
Pigs can recall important pieces of information from the past and are able to tell the difference between longer and shorter periods of time. They are able to experience emotions such as fear, excitement, happiness and anxiety. They also have expansive social qualities, like communicating with one another through
sight, sound, smell and touch; identifying individuals from a group; and learning to react to both verbal and nonverbal cues of humans. Pigs can even show emotional responses to music; become distressed if they see their friends suffer; and celebrate by wagging their tails if their companions are happy.
Pigs are sensitive and empathetic creatures who deserve our love and appreciation. Learn more at Four Paws – an animal charity with a vision to live in a world where humans treat animals with respect, empathy and understanding.
