"Imagination is more important than knowledge."
"Imagination is more important than intelligence."
I have seen both different versions in educational material and online so I was wondering which quote is more likely the genuine version (closer to what he said or wrote verbatim).
If someone could clarify this for me I would really appreciate it!
i believe its "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

I think mueller_l is correct. On the site below, I found it as part of a longer quote: "I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Albert Einstein
This is the original version
Here is another one worth mentioning:
"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

"When the eclipse of 1919 confirmed my intuition, I was not in the least surprised. In fact, I would have been astonished had it turned out otherwise. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited whereas Imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."
