Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

2.
Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.
Dorfsman, Lou

3.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

4.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

5.
It is almost as if you were frantically constructing another world while the world that you live in dissolves beneath your feet, and that your survival depends on completing this construction at least one second before the old habitation collapses.
Williams, Tennessee

6.
The power in which we must have faith if we would be well, is the creative and curative power which exists in every living thing.
Kellogg, John

7.
Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every field precisely due to their feeling of playing a relatively small part in the creation of living beings, which constantly impels them to an overcompensation in achievement?
Horney, Karen

8.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

9.
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

10.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

11.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

12.
I have asked a lot of my emotions --one hundred and twenty stories. The price was high, right up with Kipling, because there was one little drop of something, not blood, not a tear, not my seed, but me more intimately than these, in every story, it was the extra I had. Now it has gone and I am just like you now.

13.
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
Carl Jung

14.
It's like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
Doctorow, E. L.

15.
The person who can combine frames of reference and draw connections between ostensibly unrelated points of view is likely to be the one who makes the creative breakthrough.
Shekerjian, Denise

16.
The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.
Dee Hock

17.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

18.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

19.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

20.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

21.
Whoever undertakes to create soon finds himself engaged in creating himself. Self-transformation and the transformation of others have constituted the radical interest of our century, whether in painting, psychiatry, or political action.
Rosenberg, Harold

22.
When Alexander the Great visited Diogenes and asked whether he could do anything for the famed teacher, Diogenes replied:'Only stand out of my light.'Perhaps some day we shall know how to heighten creativity. Until then, one of the best things we can do for creative men and women is to stand out of their light.
John W. Gardner

23.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

24.
One measure of how creative you are is how you respond to changes in your circumstances and environment. How flexible are you? Consider how water adapts to its environment: evaporation, condensation, snowflake, melting, flowing, goes around rocks, fills containers, etc.

25.
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

26.
A line will take us hours maybe; Yet if it does not seem a moment's thought, our stitching and unstinting has been naught.
Yeats, William Butler

27.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
The whole difference between construction and creation is this; that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.
Dickens, Charles

29.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Fromm, Erich

30.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

31.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

32.
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

33.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

34.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

35.
The creative person, the person who moves from an irrational source of power, has to face the fact that this power antagonizes. Under all the superficial praise of the creative is the desire to kill. It is the old war between the mystic and the nonmystic, a war to the death.
Sarton, May

36.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

37.
The creative person wants to be a know -it -all. He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth -century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen.
Ally, Carl

38.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

39.
Thoughts give birth to a creative force that is neither elemental nor sidereal. Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow. When a man undertakes to create something, he establishes a new heaven.
Paracelsus, Philipus A.

40.
An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an originals motivated be necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human.
Ray, Man

41.
From things that have happened and from things as they exist and from all things that you know and all those you cannot know, you make something through your invention that is not a representation but a whole new thing truer than anything true and alive, and you make it alive, and if you make it well enough, you give it immortality. That is why you write and for no other reason that you know of. But what about all the reasons that no one knows?
Hemingway, Ernest

42.
The human mind cannot create anything. It produces nothing until after having been fertilized by experience and meditation; its acquisitions are the gems of its production.
Buffon, Georges-Louis Leclerc

43.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

44.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

45.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

46.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

47.
The desire to create continually is vulgar and betrays jealousy, envy, ambition. If one is something one really does not need to make anything --and one nonetheless does very much. There exists above the productive man a yet higher species.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

48.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
Bennett, Arnold

49.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

50.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook
