Creativity

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
Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

2.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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.

8.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

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.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

15.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

22.
I understood that all the material of a literary work was in my past life, I understood that I had acquired it in the midst of frivolous amusements, in idleness, in tenderness and in pain, stored up by me without my divining its destination or even its survival, as the seed has in reserve all the ingredients which will nourish the plant.
Proust, Marcel

23.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook

24.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

25.
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

26.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

27.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

28.
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

29.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

30.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Asch, Sholem

31.
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

32.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

33.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
Artaud, Antonin

34.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

35.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

36.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Einstein, Albert

37.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

38.
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

39.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

40.
It's like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
Doctorow, E. L.

41.
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

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
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

47.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

48.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.
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

50.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
