Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

2.
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

3.
The things we fear most in organizations -- fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances -- are the primary sources of creativity.
Wheatley, Margaret J.

4.
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

5.
The lash may force men to physical labor, it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.
Asch, Sholem

6.
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

7.
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

8.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

9.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille

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

12.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

13.
Creation is a drug I can't do without.
Mille, Cecil B. De

14.
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

15.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

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

18.
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

19.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

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

24.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

25.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

29.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

30.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

31.
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

32.
That which builds is better than that which is built.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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.
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.

35.
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

36.
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.

37.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

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.
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

40.
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

41.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Sackville, Margaret

42.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

44.
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

45.
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

46.
When Alexander the Great visited Diogenes and asked whether he could do anything for the famed teacher, Diogenes replied:'Only stand out of my light.'Perhaps some day we shall know how to heighten creativity. Until then, one of the best things we can do for creative men and women is to stand out of their light.
John W. Gardner

47.
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

48.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
Valery, Paul

49.
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

50.
Our current obsession with creativity is the result of our continued striving for immortality in an era when most people no longer believe in an after-life.
Stassinopoulos, Arianna
