Creativity

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
Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

2.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

3.
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

4.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De

5.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

6.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Asch, Sholem

7.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

8.
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

9.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

10.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook

11.
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

12.
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

13.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

14.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

15.
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

16.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

17.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
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

19.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

23.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

24.
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

25.
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.
Wieder, Robert

26.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
Bennett, Arnold

27.
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

28.
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

29.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

30.
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

31.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

32.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

33.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

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

36.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

37.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

38.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

39.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

40.
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

41.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

42.
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

43.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

44.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

45.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Sting

46.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

47.
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

48.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.

49.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

50.
All works of art are commissioned in the sense that no artist can create one by a simple act of will but must wait until what he believes to be a good idea for a work comes to him.
Auden, W. H.
