Best Quotes about Creativity
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
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.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De
I do not seek, I find.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
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.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
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 lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann
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.
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
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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.
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.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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
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.
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.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
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.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
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.
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.
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.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.
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.
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 things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.
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.
The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.
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.
