Curiosity is the fuel of creativity.
Creativity is best defined by two small words,”What if?” Let this be the starting point.
Creativity is a journey — whenever you go, go with all your heart.
The first step toward creativity is to acknowledge and accept that by applying ourselves, we can improve and even expand our ability to be creative.
Creativity is the capacity to confirm through action what can be imagined.
Creativity is the license to explore, to try things out, and to get things wrong. If you are going to do something wrong, you might as well enjoy it.
Creativity doesn’t always recognize talent, yet talent instantly recognizes genius.
When you can see what everybody else has seen but be thinking what nobody else has thought, you will have discovered your creativity.
The world’s wisdom and the experience of the ages has been preserved through man’s creativity.
If you are going to make a living on the proceeds of your creativity it’s better to grow a thick skin than to buy an expensive suit.
In creativity, there is as much, if not more, to be gained from the journey as there is from reaching the destination.
Whenever possible, encourage creativity in others, not with the aim of developing everyone as inventors and artists, but ensuring a continued balance in this world of critical thinkers.
Creativity can only survive desperation when it is prepared to leave behind everything it ever believed in .
If necessity is the mother of invention, its opposite is the father of creativity.
The secret to creativity is knowing how to select and hide your sources.
Artists are rarely satisfied people. They like it this way. Their creativity is fueled by unrest and dissatisfaction, which makes them stand out from everybody else, and which is why they appear to be more alive than all the rest.
Caution in creativity is often fatal.
Knowledge and integrity give creativity its strength and usefulness.
Integrity is vital, for creativity without integrity is often dreadful and potentially dangerous.
One may establish one’s creativity by being prepared not only to experiment with ideas but also to take as many of them as possible through to their solutions before presenting them to others.
Creativity is fluid — it runs from moment to moment, a river of possibilities running into a sea of potential.
The best place to begin the quest for creativity is the moment you wake on a new day. Tell yourself that anything is possible, then get up and see what is.
With tension and skepticism, creativity would be far less appealing — and far more predictable.
Creativity generates mistakes. True art is knowing which one are worth correcting.
True creativity illuminates what, without it, would never have been.
Creativity not only invigorates, it rebalances and energizes mankind.
For creativity to flourish one should try to look at everything as though it were being seen for the first or the last time.
True creativity procures the greatest happiness, inspiration, or motivation for the greatest numbers.
Go into the garden of creativity with praise and encouragement and it will bloom all around you. But enter with criticism and discouragement and it will wither before your eyes.
