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.
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

3.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

4.
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

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

7.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

8.
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

9.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

13.
All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act. This becomes even more obvious when posterity gives its final verdict and sometimes rehabilitates forgotten artists.
Duchamp, Marcel

14.
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.

15.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

16.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

17.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

18.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
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

20.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Fromm, Erich

21.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

22.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

23.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Sting

24.
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

25.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

27.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

28.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Einstein, Albert

29.
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.
Podhoretz, Norman

30.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

31.
I have asked a lot of my emotions --one hundred and twenty stories. The price was high, right up with Kipling, because there was one little drop of something, not blood, not a tear, not my seed, but me more intimately than these, in every story, it was the extra I had. Now it has gone and I am just like you now.

32.
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.
Dee Hock

33.
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

34.
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.

35.
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

36.
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

37.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

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

39.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.

40.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

41.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

45.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

46.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

47.
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

48.
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

49.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De

50.
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
