Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
Best Quotes about Creativity
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
I do not seek, I find.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
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.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Anyone can look for fashion in a boutique or history in a museum. The creative explorer looks for history in a hardware store and fashion in an airport.
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.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
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.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook
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.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
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?
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.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
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.
Ideally a painter (and, generally, an artist) should not become conscious of his insights: without taking the detour through his reflective processes, and incomprehensibly to himself, all his progress should enter so swiftly into the work that he is unable to recognize them in the moment of transition. Alas, the artist who waits in ambush there, watching, detaining them, will find them transformed like the beautiful gold in the fairy tale which cannot remain gold because some small detail was not taken care of.
Rilke, Rainer Maria
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.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.
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.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann
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.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
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
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.
I must create a system or be enslaved by another man s; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.
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.
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.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
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.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
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
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.
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
