Best Quotes about Creativity
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook
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
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou
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.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De
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.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It seems safe to say that significant discovery, really creative thinking, does not occur with regard to problems about which the thinker is lukewarm.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
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.
I must create a system or be enslaved by another man s; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.
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
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille
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.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
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.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
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 chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
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.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset
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.
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.
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
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De
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.
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.
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.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
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.
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.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.
I do not seek, I find.
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.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.
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.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
