Creativity

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

Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

2.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

3.
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.

4.
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

5.
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

6.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

7.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

8.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Einstein, Albert

9.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

10.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

11.
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

12.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

13.
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

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

15.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
Artaud, Antonin

16.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

17.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Fromm, Erich

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

19.
The power in which we must have faith if we would be well, is the creative and curative power which exists in every living thing.
Kellogg, John

20.
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

21.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

22.
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

23.
Thoughts give birth to a creative force that is neither elemental nor sidereal. Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow. When a man undertakes to create something, he establishes a new heaven.
Paracelsus, Philipus A.

24.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

25.
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

26.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

27.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

28.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

29.
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

30.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

32.
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

33.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

34.
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

35.
Much ingenuity with a little money is vastly more profitable and amusing than much money without ingenuity.
Bennett, Arnold

36.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

37.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

38.
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

39.
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

40.
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

41.
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.

42.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

43.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

44.
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

45.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

46.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

47.
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

48.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

49.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

50.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.
