Best Quotes about Creativity
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.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De
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.
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.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
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.
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.
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
I must create a system or be enslaved by another man s; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
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.
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.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Some collaboration has to take place in the mind between the woman and the man before the art of creation can be accomplished. Some marriage of opposites has to be consummated. The whole of the mind must lie wide open if we are to get the sense that the
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.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
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.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.
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.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
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.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
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.
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.
The creative process involves getting input, making a recommendation, getting critical review, getting more input, improving the recommendation, getting more critical review... again and again and again.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
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.
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.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
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.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
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.
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
