Creativity

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
Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

2.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

3.
We live at a time when man believes himself fabulously capable of creation, but he does not know what to create.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y

4.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.

5.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

6.
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

7.
All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act. This becomes even more obvious when posterity gives its final verdict and sometimes rehabilitates forgotten artists.
Duchamp, Marcel

8.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

9.
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

10.
There is the happiness which comes from creative effort. The joy of dreaming, creating, building, whether in painting a picture, writing an epic, singing a song, composing a symphony, devising new invention, creating a vast industry.
Miller, Henry

11.
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

12.
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

13.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

14.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Fromm, Erich

15.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

16.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De

17.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

18.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

19.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

20.
Creativity, as has been said, consists largely of rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. Hence, to think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted.
Kneller, George

21.
Creativity is...seeing something that doesn't exist already. You need to find out how you can bring it into being and that way be a playmate with God.
Michele Shea

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

31.
Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on the disciplined adult intelligence.
Norman Podhoretz

32.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Asch, Sholem

33.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

34.
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

35.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

36.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

37.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

38.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

39.
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

40.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

41.
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

42.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

43.
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

44.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Sting

45.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

46.
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

47.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook

48.
Our senses are indeed our doors and windows on this world, in a very real sense the key to the unlocking of meaning and the wellspring of creativity.
Houston, Jean

49.
Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy-the sense of order imposed on the disciplined adult intelligence.
Podhoretz, Norman

50.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur
