Creativity

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
Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

2.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

3.
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

4.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

5.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

6.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

10.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

11.
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

12.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

13.
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

14.
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.
Artaud, Antonin

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille

18.
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.
Podhoretz, Norman

19.
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.

20.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

21.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Sackville, Margaret

22.
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.

23.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Sting

24.
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

25.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

26.
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

27.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

28.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

29.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

30.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

31.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

32.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

34.
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

35.
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

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

37.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

38.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

39.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

40.
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

41.

Land, Edwin H.

Kellogg, John

44.
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

45.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

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

47.
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

48.
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

49.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

50.
I do not seek, I find.
