Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
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

2.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De

3.
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

4.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

5.
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

6.
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

7.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Sackville, Margaret

8.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

9.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

10.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

11.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

12.
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

13.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

14.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

15.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

16.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

17.
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

18.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook

19.
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

20.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
Valery, Paul

21.
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

22.
The desire to create continually is vulgar and betrays jealousy, envy, ambition. If one is something one really does not need to make anything --and one nonetheless does very much. There exists above the productive man a yet higher species.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

23.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

24.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

25.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

26.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Asch, Sholem

27.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

28.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Einstein, Albert

29.
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?
Hemingway, Ernest

30.
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

31.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

32.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

33.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
Artaud, Antonin

34.
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.
Carl Jung

35.
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.

36.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

37.
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.
Duchamp, Marcel

38.
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

39.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

40.
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.
Rosenberg, Harold

41.
Creative powers can just as easily turn out to be destructive. It rests solely with the moral personality whether they apply themselves to good things or to bad. And if this is lacking, no teacher can supply it or take its place.
Jung, Carl

42.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.

43.
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.
Norman Podhoretz

44.
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

45.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Sting

46.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

47.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

48.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

49.
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

50.
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
