Creativity

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
Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

2.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

3.
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

4.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

5.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Kroc, Ray

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

7.
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

8.
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

9.
One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.
Sandburg, Carl

10.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

11.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

12.
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

13.
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.

14.
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

15.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

16.
To create something you must be something.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

17.
The legs are the wheels of creativity.
Einstein, Albert

18.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

19.
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.

20.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

21.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

22.
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

23.
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.

24.
The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.
Stephen Nachmanovitch

25.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

26.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

27.
The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.
Picasso, Pablo

28.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Sackville, Margaret

29.
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

30.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

31.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

32.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

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.
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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
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

40.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille

41.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

42.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook

43.
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

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

45.
Out of nothing can come, and nothing can become nothing.
Persius

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.
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.

Frank Thomas

49.
