Creativity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Creativity

1.
Americans worship creativity the way they worship physical beauty -- as a way of enjoying elitism without guilt: God did it.
King, Florence

2.
It is wise to learn; it is God-like to create.
Saxe, John

3.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
Lee, Bruce

4.
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

5.
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

6.
I have asked a lot of my emotions --one hundred and twenty stories. The price was high, right up with Kipling, because there was one little drop of something, not blood, not a tear, not my seed, but me more intimately than these, in every story, it was the extra I had. Now it has gone and I am just like you now.

7.
A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.

8.
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

9.
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

10.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Cook, Mary Lou

11.
Had I been present at the creation of the world I would have proposed some improvements.
Alfonso X

12.
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

13.
Because of their courage, their lack of fear, they (creative people) are willing to make silly mistakes. The truly creative person is one who can think crazy; such a person knows full well that many of his great ideas will prove to be worthless. The creative person is flexible -- he is able to change as the situation changes, to break habits, to face indecision and changes in conditions without undue stress. He is not threatened by the unexpected as rigid, inflexible people are.
Goble, Frank

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Genius is initiative on fire.
Jackson, George Holbrook

18.
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.

19.
True creativity often starts where language ends.
Koestler, Arthur

20.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Land, Edwin H.

21.
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.

22.
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.

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Creativity is a drug I cannot live without.
Cecil B. DeMille

27.
Humanity can be quite cold to those whose eyes see the world differently.
Eric A. Burns

28.
A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
Every time we say, "Let there be!" in any form, something happens.
Stella Terrill Mann

30.
When all is said and done, monotony may after all be the best condition for creation.
Sackville, Margaret

31.
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
Koestler, Arthur

32.
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.
Caesar, Julius

33.
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Bono, Edward De

34.
The good ideas are all hammered out in agony by individuals, not spewed out by groups.
Browder, Charles

35.
Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.
Aldiss, Brian

36.
We try not to have ideas, preferring accidents. To create, you must empty yourself of every artistic thought.
George, Gilbert

37.
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

38.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
Frank Thomas

39.
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

40.
I started concentrating so hard on my vision that I lost sight.
Robin Green

41.
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

42.
Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.
Fromm, Erich

43.
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

44.
Man was made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
Twain, Mark

45.
It seems that the creative faculty and the critical faculty cannot exist together in their highest perfection.
Maugham, W. Somerset

46.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
Sting

47.
I do not seek, I find.
Picasso, Pablo

48.
The creative urge is the demon that will not accept anything second rate.
Mille, Agnes De

49.
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

50.
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
