Best Quotes about Creativity

The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
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.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I do not seek, I find.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
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
True creativity often starts where language ends.
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...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.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
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.
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.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
I must create a system or be enslaved by another man s; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.
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.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
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
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
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?
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De
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.
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.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
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.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.
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
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.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
It seems safe to say that significant discovery, really creative thinking, does not occur with regard to problems about which the thinker is lukewarm.
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.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual 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.
