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 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

3.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

4.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

5.
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.

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

8.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

9.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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
Woolf, Virginia

14.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

15.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

16.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

17.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

19.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille

20.
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

21.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

22.
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

23.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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.

28.
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

29.
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

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

32.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

33.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.

34.
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

35.
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.

36.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

37.
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

38.
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

39.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

40.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

41.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Fromm, Erich

43.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

44.
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

45.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

46.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

47.
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

48.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

49.
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.

50.
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
