Creativity

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
Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
Artaud, Antonin

2.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

3.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

4.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Fromm, Erich

5.
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

6.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
Bennett, Arnold

7.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Einstein, Albert

8.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

9.
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

10.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

11.
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.

12.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

13.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

14.
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

15.
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.

16.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

17.
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

18.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
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

20.
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

21.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

22.
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

23.
An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an originals motivated be necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human.
Ray, Man

24.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

25.
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

26.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

27.
I understood that all the material of a literary work was in my past life, I understood that I had acquired it in the midst of frivolous amusements, in idleness, in tenderness and in pain, stored up by me without my divining its destination or even its survival, as the seed has in reserve all the ingredients which will nourish the plant.
Proust, Marcel

28.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

30.
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

31.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

32.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

37.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

38.
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

39.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

40.
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.

41.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

47.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

48.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

49.
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

50.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas
