Creativity

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



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
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.

4.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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.
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
Woolf, Virginia

7.
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

8.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

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.
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

11.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

12.
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

13.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

14.
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

15.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

16.
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.

17.
Frugality without creativity is deprivation.
Amy Dacyczyn

18.
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

19.
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

20.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

21.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Einstein, Albert

22.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

23.
The most potent muse of all is our own inner child.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

24.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

25.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Sackville, Margaret

26.
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

27.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

28.
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

29.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

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

32.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

33.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

37.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

38.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Sting

39.
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

40.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

41.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille

42.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

43.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook

44.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
Valery, Paul

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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

49.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

50.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo
