Creativity quotes
Creativity
All the lies and evasions by which man has nourished himself -- civilization, in a word is the fruits of the creative artist. It is the creative nature of man which has refused to let him lapse back into that unconscious unity with life which characterizes the animal world from which he made his escape.

- Miller, Henry
Art requires imagination. It requires Creativity. Creativity requires experience and experience comes from your life. And your life is expressed in your art.

- Bruce Lee
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.

- Caesar, Julius
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.

- Maugham, W. Somerset
It seems safe to say that significant discovery, really creative thinking, does not occur with regard to problems about which the thinker is lukewarm.

- Henle, Mary
The great challenge which faces us is to assure that, in our society of big-ness, we do not strangle the voice of creativity, that the rules of the game do not come to overshadow its purpose, that the grand orchestration of society leaves ample room for the man who marches to the music of another drummer.

- Humphrey, Hubert H.
Creative powers can just as easily turn out to be destructive. It rests solely with the moral personality whether they apply themselves to good things or to bad. And if this is lacking, no teacher can supply it or take its place.

- Jung, Carl
Creativity is a natural extension of our enthusiasm.

- Nightingale, Earl
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.

- Fromm, Erich
The prophet who fails to present a bearable alternative and yet preaches doom is part of the trap that he postulates. Not only does he picture us caught in a tremendous man-made or God-made trap from which there is no escape, but we must also listen to him day in, day out, describe how the trap is inexorably closing. To such prophecies the human race, as presently bred and educated and situated, is incapable of listening. So some dance and some immolate themselves as human torches; some take drugs and some artists spill their creativity in sets of randomly placed dots on a white ground.

- Mead, Margaret
I firmly believe that all human beings have access to extraordinary energies and powers. Judging from accounts of mystical experience, heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know. There we go beyond those limited and limiting patterns of body, emotions, volition, and understanding that have been keeping us in dry-dock. Instead we become available to our capacity for a larger life in body, mind, and spirit. In this state we know great torrents of delight.

- Houston, Jean
I understood that all the material of a literary work was in my past life, I understood that I had acquired it in the midst of frivolous amusements, in idleness, in tenderness and in pain, stored up by me without my divining its destination or even its survival, as the seed has in reserve all the ingredients which will nourish the plant.

- Proust, Marcel
Everything vanishes around me, and works are born as if out of the void. Ripe, graphic fruits fall off. My hand has become the obedient instrument of a remote will.

- Klee, Paul
Above all, we are coming to understand that the arts incarnate the creativity of a free people. When the creative impulse cannot flourish, when it cannot freely select its methods and objects, when it is deprived of spontaneity, then society severs the root of art.

- John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Only one enemy is worse than despair: indifference. In every area of human creativity, indifference is the enemy; indifference of evil is worse than evil, because it is also sterile.

- Wiesel, Elie
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.

- Lee, Bruce
Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more than you work.

- Rita Mae Brown
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.

- Twain, Mark
Our current obsession with creativity is the result of our continued striving for immortality in an era when most people no longer believe in an after-life.

- Stassinopoulos, Arianna
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.

- Fromm, Erich
