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?
Best Quotes about Creativity
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
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.
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
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.
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.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity.
Land, Edwin H.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
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.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
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.
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.
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.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
I must create a system or be enslaved by another man s; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
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.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De
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.
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.
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.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De
It seems safe to say that significant discovery, really creative thinking, does not occur with regard to problems about which the thinker is lukewarm.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
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
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.
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
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
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
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
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.
