Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
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

2.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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.

10.
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

11.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

12.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

13.
I must create a system or be enslaved by another man s; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.
Blake, William

14.
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

15.
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

16.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
Artaud, Antonin

17.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Sackville, Margaret

18.
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

19.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Asch, Sholem

20.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

21.
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

22.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.

26.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

31.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

32.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

33.
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

34.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

39.
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.
Ray, Man

40.
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

41.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

42.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

43.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

44.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

45.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

46.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

48.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

49.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

50.
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
