Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

2.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

3.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

4.
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

5.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

6.
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.

7.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

8.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

9.
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

10.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook

11.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
Bennett, Arnold

12.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

13.
It is almost as if you were frantically constructing another world while the world that you live in dissolves beneath your feet, and that your survival depends on completing this construction at least one second before the old habitation collapses.
Williams, Tennessee

14.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

15.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
Valery, Paul

16.
The creative process involves getting input, making a recommendation, getting critical review, getting more input, improving the recommendation, getting more critical review... again and again and again.

17.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
Artaud, Antonin

18.
Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every field precisely due to their feeling of playing a relatively small part in the creation of living beings, which constantly impels them to an overcompensation in achievement?
Horney, Karen

19.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

20.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

21.
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.
Houston, Jean

22.
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

23.
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.
Miller, Henry

24.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

25.
The whole difference between construction and creation is this; that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.
Dickens, Charles

26.
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

27.
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.
Shekerjian, Denise

28.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

29.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

30.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

31.
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

32.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

33.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

34.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

35.
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

36.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Fromm, Erich

37.
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.
Goble, Frank

38.
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

39.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

40.
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

41.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

42.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

43.
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.
Ally, Carl

44.
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.
Stassinopoulos, Arianna

45.
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

46.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

47.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

48.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

49.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Sting

50.
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
