Creativity quotes

Only one enemy is worse than despair: indifference. In every area of human creativity, indifference is the enemy; indifference of evil is worse than evil, because it is also sterile.

- Wiesel, Elie

You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is, in the end, more difficult than opening the doors to the mysteries of the universe.

- Daisaku Ikeda

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.

- Kneller, George

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

- Scott Adams

There were always people like the pope. They serve a certain function, of course. They subsidize us. But, they don't create anything and they must never be allowed to stop the artist from creating.

- Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

You don't merely give over your creativity to making a film -- you give over your life! In theatre, by contrast, you live these two rather strange lives simultaneously; you have no option but to confront the mould on last night's washing-up.

- Lewis, Daniel Day

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

True creativity often starts where language ends.

- Koestler, Arthur

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

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

Responsibility is what awaits outside the Eden of Creativity.

- Gordimer, Nadine

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.

- Sarton, May

When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.

- Sackville, Margaret

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

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

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

- Artaud, Antonin

Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected.

- William Plomer

Boredom is a disease of the mind and psyche, an insidious disease. It not only takes the joy out of life, but the creativity as well. No one of God's children should ever be bored with life.


Art lives where absolute freedom is because when it is not, there can be no creativity.

- Bruce Lee

The legs are the wheels of creativity.

- Einstein, Albert
