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

Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

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

14.
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

15.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

16.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Fromm, Erich

17.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

18.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
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

20.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

21.
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

22.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

23.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

24.
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.

25.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

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

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

28.
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

29.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
Valery, Paul

30.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

31.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

32.
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.

33.
It seems safe to say that significant discovery, really creative thinking, does not occur with regard to problems about which the thinker is lukewarm.
Henle, Mary

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.

Mille, Agnes De

44.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

45.
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

46.
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

47.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

48.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.

49.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
