Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

2.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

3.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

4.
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

5.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Sackville, Margaret

6.
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

7.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

8.
Because of their courage, their lack of fear, they (creative people) are willing to make silly mistakes. The truly creative person is one who can think crazy; such a person knows full well that many of his great ideas will prove to be worthless. The creative person is flexible -- he is able to change as the situation changes, to break habits, to face indecision and changes in conditions without undue stress. He is not threatened by the unexpected as rigid, inflexible people are.
Goble, Frank

9.
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

10.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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.

14.
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

15.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
Bennett, Arnold

16.
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.

17.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

19.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

20.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Einstein, Albert

21.
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

22.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

23.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
Artaud, Antonin

24.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Asch, Sholem

25.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

26.
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

27.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

28.
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

29.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

30.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

31.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

32.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
Valery, Paul

33.
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

34.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

35.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

36.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

37.
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

38.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

39.
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

40.
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

41.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

42.
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.

43.
Creativity comes from awakening and directing men's higher natures, which originate in the primal depths of the uni- verse and are appointed by Heaven.
I Ching

44.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

45.
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

46.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

47.
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

48.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

49.
There were always people like the pope. They serve a certain function, of course. They subsidize us. But, they don't create anything and they must never be allowed to stop the artist from creating.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

50.
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
