Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Best Quotes about Creativity
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.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I must create a system or be enslaved by another man s; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.
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.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
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.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De
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 legs are the wheels of creativity.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.
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.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
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.
I do not seek, I find.
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
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
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.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
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 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 lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
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
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.
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.
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.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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 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.
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
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.
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
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.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset
