Creativity quotes by Erwin Raphael McManus
#8. Yet the integrity of the universe is the context in which creativity is best expressed. The canvas does not limit God's creativity but rather celebrates it. The elegant complexity of creation is a beautiful reminder that the creative mind is a disciplined mind, that the creative act is not a struggle to be free of limitations but a demonstration that when we embrace our limitations, creativity has no boundaries. #Quote by Erwin Raphael McManus
Creativity quotes by Dick Sederquist
#9. People ask me how to start writing. I tell them that 'Creating Creates Creativity'. Put your notes and outline aside. Start with one anecdote or conversation, and that will lead to another and another. It's the steps, the path, not the final destination that drives the process or writing. #Quote by Dick Sederquist
Creativity quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#10. Pure creativity is something better than a necessity; it's a gift. It's the frosting. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Creativity quotes by Thomas Armstrong
#11. Children and adolescents, being relatively new to life, are naturally creative because they haven't been brainwashed, so to speak, by the conventional attitudes of society. Consequently, students are always coming up with novel images, words, and actions that my delight, enlighten, or inspire adults....Creativity has not been the subject of intense focus, extensive research, or high levels of funding in American education. #Quote by Thomas Armstrong
Creativity quotes by Rajneesh
#12. An intelligent man, a man who has a little meditative consciousness, can make his life a beautiful piece of art, can make it so full of love and full of music and full of poetry and full of dance that there are no limitations for it. Life is not hard. It is man's stupidity that makes it hard. #Quote by Rajneesh
Creativity quotes by Ken Robinson
#13. If you design a system to do something specific, don't be surprised if it does it. If you run an education system based on standardization and conformity that suppresses individuality, imagination, and creativity, don't be surprised it that's what it does. #Quote by Ken Robinson
Creativity quotes by Pranab Mukherjee
#14. India is a land of plenty inhibited by poverty; India has an enthralling, uplifting civilization that sparkles not only in our magnificent art, but also in the enormous creativity and humanity of our daily life in city and village. #Quote by Pranab Mukherjee
Creativity quotes by N.M. Silber
#15. I would rather be a real Timex than a fake Rolex. #Quote by N.M. Silber
Creativity quotes by Zita Steele
#16. The Diné are children of the sun. They are rugged and graceful people. They love the radiance of color and silver, the purity of nature, and the speed of horses. They have a gift for adaptation and creativity. They do everything with spontaneity and flair. #Quote by Zita Steele
Creativity quotes by Sanford Levinson
#17. There is nothing wrong with someone who receives less than a majority of the vote being elected a representative. This is almost by definition the result in a system of proportional representation that elects multiple representatives from the same geographical unit and adopts voting rules that allow numerical minorities without the voting clout ever to win a race in a single-member district to elect a favorite in a multimember district. The designof multi-member institutions, like legislatures, offers many possibilities for creativity if one's desire is to maximize the number of people who feel some sense of genuine linkage with their putative "representatives. #Quote by Sanford Levinson
Creativity quotes by Phillip Gary Smith
#18. Discovery's friend is creativity #Quote by Phillip Gary Smith
Creativity quotes by Jodi Picoult
#19. A villain let your creativity out of its cage. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Creativity quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#20. For me, creativity is essentially a spiritual experience, a conversation between my soul and me. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Creativity quotes by Victor Pinchuk
#21. Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics. #Quote by Victor Pinchuk
Creativity quotes by Liam O'Flaherty
#22. It's impossible for a creative artist to be either a Puritan or a Fascist, because both are a negation of the creative urge. The only things a creative artist can be opposed to are ugliness and injustice. #Quote by Liam O'Flaherty
Creativity quotes by Wiz Khalifa
#23. I'm inspired by other people's creativity, just seeing things happen and wondering where they come from. That gets my mind going. Even if it's just wanting to know how something works. #Quote by Wiz Khalifa
Creativity quotes by Erica Jong
#24. Why are women so ungenerous to other women? Is it because we have been tokens for so long? Or is there a deeper animosity we owe it to ourselves to explore?
A publisher...couldn't understand why women were so loath to help each other.... The notion flitted through my mind that somehow, by helping..., I might be hurting my own chances for something or other -- what I did not know. If there was room for only one woman poet, another space would be filled....
If I still feel I am in competition with other women, how do less well-known women feel? Terrible, I have to assume.

I have had to train myself to pay as much attention to women at parties as to men.... I have had to force myself not to be dismissive of other women's creativity. We have been semi-slaves for so long (as Doris Lessing says) that we must cultivate freedom within ourselves. It doesn't come naturally. Not yet.
In her writing about the drama of childhood developments, Alice Miller has created, among other things, a theory of freedom. in order to embrace freedom, a child must be sufficiently nurtured, sufficiently loved. Security and abundance are the grounds for freedom. She shows how abusive child-rearing is communicated from one generation to the next and how fascism profits from generations of abused children. Women have been abused for centuries, so it should surprise no one that we are so good at abusing each other. Until we learn how to stop doing that, we cannot make our revoluti #Quote by Erica Jong
Creativity quotes by Timothy Garton Ash
#25. To be in Florence is to reflect on Europe's intricate diversity - and its lost creativity. #Quote by Timothy Garton Ash
Creativity quotes by Michele Jennae
#26. On the great canvas of time
We all create our own masterpiece.
Choreographing our steps across minutes and hours
Dancing over the days
Painting pictures over months and
Writing our stories on the years.
Singing our songs that echo across eons.
We are all a thread in the talent tapestry.
A snapshot in the cosmic, collective collage. #Quote by Michele Jennae
Creativity quotes by Sam Walton
#27. I have always been driven to buck the system, to innovate, to take things beyond where they've been. #Quote by Sam Walton
Creativity quotes by Gian Kumar
#28. Creativity is not any accumulated knowledge, coming from past to the present. The stage of creation is a spontaneous flash of intelligence, Energy merging with mind, to create a new beginning. Creativity and meditation are similar, as both are expressions of something beyond mind. #Quote by Gian Kumar
Creativity quotes by Garry Fitchett
#29. It's cool to know I thought a book into existence. #Quote by Garry Fitchett
Creativity quotes by Kate Inglis
#30. Beautiful publishers say beautiful things and then We're sorry, but no... and then more beautiful things. It's a shit sandwich with branston pickle and melted gouda.

I read it out loud to the kids. I stick it to the fridge with the others. Some writers do that because it turns their crank to have a Wall of Publishers Who Passed And Will Someday Regret It. I don't. Each one is, really and truly, a gift. We look at them and the boys and I talk about rejection, all kinds of it. Creative, karmic, romantic. Nothing works out until something does. #Quote by Kate Inglis
Creativity quotes by Somer Brodribb
#31. The assertion that only sex is power and the arrogation of creativity to the masculine sex and the rendering of all creativity as sexual - this is patriarchal aesthetics. Patriarchal passion sees violent sex as the essential creative act, even aesthetically, through a sort of metaphysical transubstantiation. This is their romantic belief that sex with the Master can produce the artistic spirit in the student. Male creativity is thus born in another, her work is given depth through the violent transgression of her boundaries. #Quote by Somer Brodribb
Creativity quotes by Laurence Overmire
#32. It takes no genius to destroy. The creators, the givers, the lovers, the healers - these are the heroes who know - the building up is so much more difficult than the tearing down. #Quote by Laurence Overmire
Creativity quotes by Jonah Lehrer
#33. Money chases good ideas #Quote by Jonah Lehrer
Creativity quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#34. But our democratic institutions are not automated. They must be inhabited by citizens and citizen leaders who know how to hold conflict inwardly in a manner that converts it into creativity, allowing it to pull them open to new ideas, new courses of action, and each other. That kind of tension-holding is the work of the well-tempered heart: if democracy is to thrive as that restored prairie is thriving, our hearts and our institutions must work in concert. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer
Creativity quotes by Bukoye Micheal
#35. Imagination releases curiosity and sensitivity triggers creativity #Quote by Bukoye Micheal
Creativity quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#36. Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Creativity quotes by Albert Einstein
#37. Creativity is intelligence having fun. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Creativity quotes by Rajneesh
#38. So the first thing to be remembered: don't confine creativity to anything in particular. A man is creative - and if he is creative, whatsoever he does, even if he walks, you can see in his walking there is creativity. Even if he sits silently and does nothing, even non-doing will be a creative act. Buddha sitting under the Bodhi Tree doing nothing is the greatest creator the world has ever known. #Quote by Rajneesh
Creativity quotes by J.I. Packer
#39. To summarize, then, it appears that Christian holiness is a number of things together. It has both outward and inward aspects. Holiness is a matter of both action and motivation, conduct and character, divine grace and human effort, obedience and creativity, submission and initiative, consecration to God and commitment to people, self-discipline and self-giving, righteousness and love. It is a matter of Spirit-led law-keeping, a walk, or course of life, in the Spirit that displays the fruit of the Spirit (Christlikeness of attitude and disposition). It is a matter of seeking to imitate Jesus' way of behaving, through depending on Jesus for deliverance from carnal self-absorption and for discernment of spiritual needs and possibilities. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Creativity quotes by Tony Dovale
#40. Impossible is a perception based upon a limiting mental illusion. Possible is the belief in the potential of unseen possibility, #Quote by Tony Dovale
Creativity quotes by Alan Cohen
#41. Will you ever run out of creative ideas and expressions? Ha! The more creative ideas you have, the more you will discover. Creativity is a tree with countless branches that never stop blossoming. #Quote by Alan Cohen
Creativity quotes by Justin Halpern
#42. On Lego's
Listen, I don't want to stifle your creativity, but that thing you built there, it looks a pile of shit. #Quote by Justin Halpern
Creativity quotes by Ron Johnson
#43. Creativity is what transforms. #Quote by Ron Johnson
Creativity quotes by Mads Mikkelsen
#44. I will never be a fan of any kind of political correctness: I think it's instant death to creativity. #Quote by Mads Mikkelsen
Creativity quotes by Sara Genn
#45. Art is a perfectly complete cause. #Quote by Sara Genn
Creativity quotes by Tim Brown
#46. We can learn that reward comes in creation and re-creation, no just in the consumption of the world around us. Active participation in the process of creation is our right and our privilege. We can learn to measure the success of our ideas not by our bank accounts by their impact on the world. #Quote by Tim Brown
Creativity quotes by Mitt Romney
#47. Starving research and development is like eating the seed corn. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Creativity quotes by Osho
#48. Life in itself has no meaning. Life is an opportunity to create meaning. #Quote by Osho
Creativity quotes by Steve Jobs
#49. Creativity comes from spontaneous meetings, from random discussions. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Creativity quotes by Robert Rauschenberg
#50. Curiosity is the main energy... #Quote by Robert Rauschenberg
Creativity quotes by Alan G. Robinson
#51. Very few managers know how to effectively tap the biggest source of performance improvement available to them: namely, the creativity and knowledge of the people who work for them. #Quote by Alan G. Robinson
Creativity quotes by Bill Gates
#52. I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user. #Quote by Bill Gates
Creativity quotes by Michael Gungor
#53. Not every artist has to make a living making art. Millions of people who play guitar would do well to keep their day jobs. Plenty of people make incredible art "on the side". William Faulkner wasn't any less of an artist for writing As I lay Dying on the back of a wheelbarrow during breaks in his job shoveling coal for the electric company. #Quote by Michael Gungor
Creativity quotes by Margaret Heffernan
#54. If the company depends entirely on you - your creativity, ingenuity, inspiration, salesmanship or charisma - nobody will want to buy it. The risk and the dependency are too great. #Quote by Margaret Heffernan
Creativity quotes by Jenna Cornell
#55. Art is the essence of life in creative form. If you want to compete, run a damn race. If you truly want to create essence, you need to leave competition out of it. 2014 #Quote by Jenna Cornell
Creativity quotes by Stephanie Lennox
#56. The sooner you finish procrastinating, the sooner you can get back to your art. #Quote by Stephanie Lennox
Creativity quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#57. Authority in its very nature prevents the full awareness of oneself and therefore ultimately destroys freedom; in freedom alone can there be creativeness. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Creativity quotes by Mike Cosper
#58. All human creativity is an echo of God's creativity. When God makes man, he forms him in the dirt, breathes life into him, and sends him out in the world. We've been playing in the dirt ever since. Just as God took something he'd made, shaped it, breathed life and meaning into it, and transformed it into something new, so we set about our own business, taking creation, shaping it, and giving it new meaning and purpose. Clay becomes sculpture. Trees become houses. Sounds are arranged in time to become music. Oils, pigments, and canvas are arranged to become paintings. Various metals, glass, and petroleum products become iPhones. The same is true of stories. There is nothing new under the sun, and our stories - no matter how fresh and new they might feel - are all a way of "playing in the dirt," wrestling with creation, reimagining it, working with it, and making it new. Our stories have a way of fitting into the bigger story of redemption that overshadows all of life and all of history. Because that bigger story is the dirt box in which all the other stories play. #Quote by Mike Cosper
Creativity quotes by Madeline Miller
#59. All this while, I have been a weaver without wool, a ship without the sea. Yet now look where I sail. #Quote by Madeline Miller
Creativity quotes by Daniel H. Pink
#60. Intrinsic motivation is conducive to creativity; controlling extrinsic motivation is detrimental to creativity. #Quote by Daniel H. Pink
Creativity quotes by Steven Symes
#61. Those who say there are no more original ideas need to get out of the way of those of us who are creating them. #Quote by Steven Symes
Creativity quotes by Anthony Marais
#62. A creative life has nothing to do with where you're from or how much money you earn. It's merely a reflection of the creative intellect. #Quote by Anthony Marais
Creativity quotes by Bill Johnson
#63. Creativity is normal for any believer who is not influenced by anxiety. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Creativity quotes by Maggie Macnab
#64. Design is a fundamental human activity, relevant and useful to everyone. Anything humans create - be it product, communication or system - is a result of the process of making inspiration real. I believe in doing what works as circumstances change: quirky or unusual solutions are often good ones. Nature bends and so should we as appropriate. Nature is always right outside our door as a reference and touch point. We should use it far more than we do. #Quote by Maggie Macnab
Creativity quotes by Austin Kleon
#65. Be curious about the world in which you live. Look things up. Chase down every reference. Go deeper than anybody else
that's how you'll get ahead. #Quote by Austin Kleon
Creativity quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#66. Write them all down. The mistakes and the blessings and the places you cracked in two. Write the prayers and the tantrums. The sacred and the profane. The open roads and the closed doors. Nothing is permanent. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Creativity quotes by Philippe Starck
#67. I have this mental sickness called creativity #Quote by Philippe Starck
Creativity quotes by H. L. Balcomb
#68. The flowers' beauty drew her closer to them like a magnetic force. She felt compelled to walk a little faster. #Quote by H. L. Balcomb
Creativity quotes by Frank Barron
#69. Creativity is energy being put to work in a constructive fashion. #Quote by Frank Barron
Creativity quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#70. Love means to understand the drama that happens between the inner man and woman. It means to allow both the inner man and woman to find their creative roots and expression. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
Creativity quotes by Ruth Rendell
#71. I really do literally put myself into a character's shoes. #Quote by Ruth Rendell
Creativity quotes by Patti Smith
#72. A writer or any artist can't expect to be embraced by the people. I've done records where it seemed like no one listened to them. You write poetry books that maybe 50 people read. And you just keep doing your work because you have to, because it's your calling.

But it's beautiful to be embraced by the people.

Some people have said to me, "Well, don't you think that kind of success spoils one as an artist? If you're a punk rocker, you don't want to have a hit record…"

And I say to them, "Fuck you!"

One does their work for the people. And the more people you can touch, the more wonderful it is. You don't do your work and say, "I only want the cool people to read it." You want everyone to be transported, or hopefully inspired by it.

When I was really young, William Burroughs told me, "Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don't make compromises. Don't worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned with doing good work. And make the right choices and protect your work. And if you can build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency. #Quote by Patti Smith
Creativity quotes by Bill Gates
#73. Creativity allows people to be effective. #Quote by Bill Gates
Creativity quotes by Rajneesh
#74. Whether you create, or you observe an objective piece of creativity, meditation should be the key. Without it, mind can only spread on the canvas its nightmares. Most of the paintings of the great painters like Paul Gaugin or Picasso are almost like vomit. They could not contain their agony and suffering - it was so much they threw it on the canvas to get relief. The real objective art is not a relief; it is not a sickness that you want to get rid of. It is a blissfulness that you want to share. And by sharing, it grows; you have more of it, the more it is shared. #Quote by Rajneesh
Creativity quotes by Laurie Perez
#75. Step into the center of the center of the center - right into your Now - and see: how elegant and honest this moment is. Just being yourself, a world to hold your feet, a universe to lift your gaze, a heart beating - constant, in the center of it all. #Quote by Laurie Perez
Creativity quotes by Deb Margolis
#76. Great art comes from passion, from a need to expose human spirit in the face of mortality, the small cruelties and heroisms that make up daily life
that's where great work comes from, and if you enable students in this way to discover those impulses and observations in themselves, those heroisms and cruelties in themselves, you create an atmosphere in which art can emerge. #Quote by Deb Margolis
Creativity quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#77. Creativity connects me to my truest self and vulnerability. There is nothing more personally liberating, than reaching for my face and peeling off the social mask that hides my; shadow self, pain and weakness. When i produce from this place of truth, the results transform both creator and beholder. #Quote by Jaeda DeWalt
Creativity quotes by Pearl Zhu
#78. Listening is an important skill to spark creativity and cultivate empathy. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Creativity quotes by Lewis Thomas
#79. Mistakes are at the very base of human thought, embedded there, feeding the structure like root nodules. If we were not provided with the knack for being wrong, we could never get anything useful done. We think our way along by choosing between right and wrong alternatives, and the wrong choices have to be made as often as the right ones. We get along in life this way. #Quote by Lewis Thomas
Creativity quotes by Susan Orlean
#80. I like the idea that people get engaged thinking about design, about creativity. I don't see how it could possibly be bad. #Quote by Susan Orlean
Creativity quotes by Stephanie S. Tolan
#81. Part book about creativity, part compendium of useful tidbits, quotations and research results, and part annotated bibliography, this is a wildly useful and highly entertaining resource. #Quote by Stephanie S. Tolan
Creativity quotes by Muammar Al-Gaddafi
#82. [The] type of education now prevailing all over the world is directed against human freedom. State-controlled education ... deprives people of their free choice, creativity and brilliance. #Quote by Muammar Al-Gaddafi
Creativity quotes by Pearl Zhu
#83. Dissatisfaction with status quo is the psychology behind creative disruptions. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Creativity quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#84. A creative thought at first sight seems ridiculous and unimportant, an increase in those who cherish it reassures that hiding your creativity hides you for the rest of your life. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Creativity quotes by Eric Maisel
#85. To obsess too virulently is to walk alone in anxiety. But to obsess too little is to wall oneself off from one's own creativity. #Quote by Eric Maisel
Creativity quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#86. Some writers aren't writers, they are mere escapees' and refugees' on an exile from the jungle of thoughts. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Creativity quotes by George Leonard
#87. Even without comparing ourselves to the world's greatest, we set such high standards for ourselves that neither we nor anyone else could ever meet them-and nothing is more destructive to creativity than this. We fail to realize that mastery is not about perfection. It's about a process, a journey. The master is the one who stays on the path day after day, year after year. The master is the one who is willing to try, and fail, and try again, for as long as he or she lives. #Quote by George Leonard
Creativity quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#88. A central administration enervates the nations in which it exists by incessantly diminishing their public spirit. If such an administration succeeds in convincing all the disposable resources of a people, it impairs at least the renewal of those resources. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Creativity quotes by Martin Villeneuve
#89. All the difficulties surrounding the making of 'Mars et Avril' actually fueled its creativity and contributed to its international success! #Quote by Martin Villeneuve
Creativity quotes by Frank Capra
#90. A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something. #Quote by Frank Capra
Creativity quotes by E.B. White
#91. The mind travels faster than the pen; consequently, writing becomes a question of learning to make occasional wing shots, bringing down the bird of thought as it flashes by. A writer is a gunner, sometimes waiting in the blind for something to come in, sometimes roaming the countryside hoping to scare something up. #Quote by E.B. White
Creativity quotes by Deepak Chopra
#92. Wherever you go in the midst of movement and activity, carry your stillness with you. Then the chaotic movement around you will never overshadow your access to the reservoir of creativity, the field of pure potentiality. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Creativity quotes by Kenneth Kaye
#93. If we manage conflict constructively, we harness its energy for creativity and development. #Quote by Kenneth Kaye
Creativity quotes by Rajneesh
#94. Everybody is born with the capacity to enjoy, but not with the art. People think just because they are alive and they breathe and they exist, they know how to enjoy. That is sheer stupidity. Enjoyment is a great art, it is a great discipline. It is as subtle a discipline as music or poetry or painting. It is the greatest creativity. #Quote by Rajneesh
Creativity quotes by Lauren Artress
#95. I have two questions for you: What do you need to make your creativity shine through? Why do you keep ignoring it? #Quote by Lauren Artress
Creativity quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#96. Creativity does not belong exclusively to professional artists and geniuses; it is the birthright of every single human being. Creativity is our common heritage. You don't need to quit your job and move to Paris in order to lay claim to this heritage - all you have to do is clear some space in your life for whimsy, invention, sensory pleasure, and play. Most of all, you have to learn how to follow your curiosity more than your fear. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Creativity quotes by Jean Shinoda Bolen
#97. When we enter a forest phase in our lives we enter a period of wandering and a time of potential soul growth. Here it is possible to find what we have cut off from, to "remember" a once vital aspect of ourselves. We may uncover a wellspring of creativity that has been hidden for decades. #Quote by Jean Shinoda Bolen
Creativity quotes by Kimberly Loskov
#98. Language needs creativity and imagination to work, if not it will seem and sound stupid with its lack of sense and meaning #Quote by Kimberly Loskov
Creativity quotes by Robert Greene
#99. The conventional mind is passive - it consumes information and regurgitates it in familiar forms. The dimensional mind is active, transforming everything it digests into something new and original, creating instead of consuming. #Quote by Robert Greene
Creativity quotes by Clipse
#100. Life's a maze, you twist and you turn through it
The driest of droughts, maneuvered and I earned through it #Quote by Clipse
Creativity quotes by H. L. Balcomb
#101. He was humbled by her infinite love toward him - it shone through even in his afterlife. #Quote by H. L. Balcomb
Creativity quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#102. Human creativity is unlimited. It is the capacity of humans to make things happen which didn't happen before. Creativity provides the key to solving our social and economic problems. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Creativity quotes by Michelangelo Antonioni
#103. We know that behind every image revealed there is another image more faithful to reality, and in the back of that image there is another, and yet another behind the last one, and so on, up to the true image of that absolute, mysterious reality that no one will ever see. #Quote by Michelangelo Antonioni
Creativity quotes by Jack White
#104. Technology is a big destroyer of emotion and truth. Auto-tuning doesn't do anything for creativity. Yeah, it makes it easier and you can get home sooner; but it doesn't make you a more creative person. That's the disease we have to fight in any creative field: ease of use. #Quote by Jack White
Creativity quotes by Banksy
#105. Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don't come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they're having a piss. #Quote by Banksy
Creativity quotes by Andy Murray
#106. Where resources are plentiful (i.e. no constraints), you will find very little creativity. Where resources are scarce (i.e. many constraints), you will find an abundance of creativity. #Quote by Andy Murray
Creativity quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding
#107. Don't go to great trouble to optimize something that never should be done at all. Aim to enhance total systems properties, such as creativity, stability, diversity, resilience, and sustainability-whether they are easily measured or not. #Quote by Kenneth E. Boulding
Creativity quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#108. On Pilgrim's Progress: I could not have believed beforehand that Calvinism could be painted in such exquisitely delightful colors. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Creativity quotes by John Kao
#109. Creativity, my students learn, is as natural a function of the mind as breathing or digestion are natural functions of the body. #Quote by John Kao
Creativity quotes by Freddy Adu
#110. All I can say is, hey, if you have fun doing what you do, if you have fun playing soccer, the creativity is just going to come as time goes on. #Quote by Freddy Adu
Creativity quotes by Frazey Ford
#111. Creativity is a powerful force for anyone attempting to heal themselves. #Quote by Frazey Ford
Creativity quotes by Jeremy Camp
#112. How my emotions starred as I played! During one of this tug-of-war contest between knowing right and doing wrong, I wrote the words to a song on my own for the first time. #Quote by Jeremy Camp
Creativity quotes by Daniel H. Pink
#113. Abstract thinking leads to greater creativity ... But in our businesses and our lives, we often do the opposite. We intensify our focus rather than widen our view. #Quote by Daniel H. Pink
Creativity quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#114. You're not required to save the world with your creativity. Your art not only doesn't have to be original, in other words, it also doesn't have to be important. For example, whenever anyone tells me that they want to write a book in order to help other people I always think 'Oh, please don't. Please don't try to help me.' I mean it's very kind of you to help people, but please don't make it your sole creative motive because we will feel the weight of your heavy intention, and it will put a strain upon our souls. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Creativity quotes by Sophia Amoruso
#115. Creativity and business acumen don't always go hand in hand. #Quote by Sophia Amoruso
Creativity quotes by Ernst Haas
#116. You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes. #Quote by Ernst Haas
Creativity quotes by Nicolas Winding Refn
#117. How can creativity be bad? You can have, "I liked it" or "I didn't like it," but, in the end, it's an individual experience. How can you even begin to define that? I find that sometimes extremely arrogant and counter-productive. #Quote by Nicolas Winding Refn
Creativity quotes by Seth Godin
#118. Conformity no longer leads to comfort. But the good news is that creativity is scarce, and more valuable than ever. So is choosing to do something unpredictable and brave: make art. Being an artist isn't a genetic disposition or a specific talent. It's an attitude we can all adopt. It's a hunger to seize new ground, make connections, and work without a map. If you do those things you're an artist, no matter what it says on your business card. #Quote by Seth Godin
Creativity quotes by Gossy Ukanwoke
#119. Schools kill time and creativity. Find ways to workaround these limitations #Quote by Gossy Ukanwoke
Creativity quotes by Bryant McGill
#120. The true creator-self is a light-at-heart and care-free child, who accesses destiny as a simple act of joyful play. #Quote by Bryant McGill

Creativity quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#128. The ideal country in a flat world is the one with no natural resources, because countries with no natural resources tend to dig inside themselves. They try to tap the energy, entrepreneurship, creativity, and intelligence of their own people-men and women-rather than drill an oil well. #Quote by Thomas L. Friedman
Creativity quotes by Deepak Chopra
#129. A child raised with spiritual skills will be able to answer the most basic questions about how the universe works; she will understand the source of creativity both within and outside herself; she will be able to practice nonjudgment, acceptance, and truth, which are the most valuable skills anyone can possess for dealing with other people; and she will be free from the crippling fear and anxiety about the meaning of life that is the secret dry rot inside the hearts of most adults, whether they can admit it or not. The deepest nurturing you can give your child is spiritual nurturing. #Quote by Deepak Chopra

Creativity quotes by Deborah Blake
#135. God and Goddess, I greet you at the start of another day and ask that you send me the best day possible. Help me to feel my best so I might do my best for myself and for others.

Help me to let go of all those things that no longer work for my benefit so I might move in the direction of perfect health and perfect balance. Help the world move in a better direction, and watch over me and those I love. Please send me prosperity and healing, patience and wisdom, serenity and faith. ... So mote it be. #Quote by Deborah Blake
Creativity quotes by Paul Zollo
#136. I can't discard a verse before it is written because it is the writing of the verse that produces whatever delights or interests or facets that are going to catch the light. The cutting of the gem has to be finished before you can see whether it shines. You can't discover that in the raw. ~ Leonard Cohen #Quote by Paul Zollo
Creativity quotes by Stefan Zweig
#137. But the creative person is subject to a different, higher law than mere national law. Whoever has to create a work, whoever has tobring about a discovery or deed which will further the cause of all of humanity, no longer has his home in his native land but rather in his work. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Creativity quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#138. Let your pain lead you to creativity #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Creativity quotes by Amy Bloom
#139. Nonfiction is both easier and harder to write than fiction. It's easier because the facts are already laid out before you, and there is already a narrative arc. What makes it harder is that you are not free to use your imagination and creativity to fill in any missing gaps within the story. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Creativity quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#140. Love always brings difficulties, that is true, but the good side of it is that it gives energy. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Creativity quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#141. There is a juiciness to creativity, a succulence that comes up from within, a sensuality which both produces and is soothed by the act and product of creativity. Creativity is pleasing to us on a deep level. Be it the feel of clay in our hands, the colors that make us feel alive as we knit or sew, the meaning that we find in the words that we write, the energizing feel of movement as we dance and the music moves through our bodies. Taking part in creativity helps us to be more fully alive on every level, it asks that we engage with life in a visceral, and interactive way. #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Creativity quotes by John Kao
#142. Creativity is not like the weather: You can do something about it. And you can measure it well enough to determine its effect on sales and profits. #Quote by John Kao
Creativity quotes by Joseph Deitch
#143. Rather than torture ourselves and others about our shortcomings, we can approach life with an attitude of curious delight. And the delight part is just as important as the curious. #Quote by Joseph Deitch

Creativity quotes by Herbie Hancock

Creativity quotes by Allan Bloom
#147. It is easy today to deny God's creativity as a thing of the benighted past, overcome by science, but man's creativity, a thing much more improbable and nothing but an imitation of God's, exercises a strange attraction. #Quote by Allan Bloom
Creativity quotes by Kevin Ansbro
#148. May the key of inspiration unlock your dungeon of creativity #Quote by Kevin Ansbro
Creativity quotes by Gary Hamel
#149. **New business concepts are always, always the product of lucky foresight.**
That's right - the essential insight doesn't come out of any dirigiste planning process; it comes form some cocktail of happenstance, desire, curiosity, ambition and need. But at the end of the day, there has to be a degree of foresight
a sense of where new riches lie. So radical innovation is always one part fortuity and one part clearheaded vision.

Creativity quotes by Albert Einstein
#152. The framing of a problem is often far more essential than its solution #Quote by Albert Einstein
Creativity quotes by Robert Spencer
#153. We love death more than you love life.' This is civilization's ultimate challenge. Will the lovers of death and destruction overwhelm and defeat those who love life and have created great civilizations that celebrate human creativity and achievement? Will all that is left of three thousand years of human civilization be reduced to rubble and a mindless religio-ideological lockstep?
The Islamic State is not just a challenge to Judeo-Christian Western civilization. It is a challenge to civilization itself--to the very idea of civilization.
And that is why it is doomed to fail. Life will always conquer death in the end. The human spirit will always prevail against the forces that would subjugate and enslave it. #Quote by Robert Spencer
Creativity quotes by Fennel Hudson
#154. The greatest moments of creativity come in absolute solitude, when one's mind is free from distraction and able to probe the depths of the impossible. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Creativity quotes by Alan Brennert
#155. We make a home for ourselves, every time we work on something: actors, writers, singers, building these little nests in our gypsy souls, in place of the ones we so seldom seem to make in our own lives. And then suddenly it's over, and we have to start again. #Quote by Alan Brennert
Creativity quotes by James Runcie
#156. One of the tutors let it slip when we were talking about the difference between revelation, inspiration, creativity and madness. How can we know which is which? #Quote by James Runcie
Creativity quotes by Jamie Hyneman
#157. Duct tape is not a perfect solution to anything. But with a little creativity, in a pinch, it's an adequate solution to just about everything. #Quote by Jamie Hyneman

Creativity quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#159. Every really able man, in whatever direction he works - a man of large affairs, an inventor, a statesman, an orator, a poet, a painter - if you talk sincerely with him, considers his work, however much admired, as far short of what it should be. What is this Better, this flying Ideal, but the perpetual promise of his Creator? #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Creativity quotes by Ananda Coomaraswamy
#160. We have come to think of art and work as incompatible, or at least independent categories and have for the first time in history created an industry without art. #Quote by Ananda Coomaraswamy

Creativity quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#163. When they were in school, Peter used to say that everything you do is a self-portrait. It might look like 'Saint George and the Dragon' or 'The Rape of the Sabine Women,' but the angle you use, the lighting, the composition, the technique, they're all you. You are every color and brushstroke. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Creativity quotes by Anne Lamott
#164. Creative expression, whether that means writing, dancing, bird-watching, or cooking, can give a person almost everything that he or she has been searching for: enlivenment, peace, meaning, and the incalculable wealth of time spent quietly in beauty. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Creativity quotes by J. Tillman

Creativity quotes by Nadezhda Tolokonnikova
#172. Modern capitalism seeks to assure us that it operates according to the principles of free creativity, endless development and diversity. It glosses over its other side in order to hide the reality that millions of people are enslaved by an all-powerful and fantastically stable norm of production. We want to reveal this lie. #Quote by Nadezhda Tolokonnikova
Creativity quotes by Richard Price
#173. You can't take a character anywhere they don't expect the character to go. But within those confines is where creativity lies. #Quote by Richard Price
Creativity quotes by Rosemary Sullivan
#174. When we fall in love at a glance, the question we should ask ourselves (and this would apply to both men and women) is, What is it that we long for? Or perhaps, What are we lacking so that we can turn life in the direction we want? Creativity? Confidence? Authority? Recklessness? Irresponsibility? Or even darkness? Perhaps the lover is the outlaw in ourselves we don't quite have the nerve to claim. (p. 34) #Quote by Rosemary Sullivan
Creativity quotes by Grant Achatz
#175. People like to think the creative process is romantic. The artist drifts to sleep at night, to be awakened by the subliminal echoes of his or her next brilliant idea. The truth, for me at least, is that creativity is primarily the result of hard work and study. #Quote by Grant Achatz
Creativity quotes by Edward De Bono
#176. In the art world, creativity involves aesthetic sensibility, emotional resonance and a gift for expression. #Quote by Edward De Bono
Creativity quotes by Murray Bookchin
#177. What compels me to fight this society is, of course, outrage over injustice, a love of freedom, and a feeling of responsibility for perpetuating and enlarging the human spirit - its beauty, creativity, and latent capacity to improve the world. I do not care to come to terms with an irrational society that corrodes all that is valuable in humanity, that eats away at all that is beautiful and noble in the human experience. #Quote by Murray Bookchin
Creativity quotes by Pearl Zhu
#178. Businesses need the well-defined set of guidelines and rules for managing innovation risks in a structural way. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Creativity quotes by Nikki Sixx
#179. The funny thing is that when you have any form of presentation to your band, meaning you have the foresight to see outside of your creativity, you have a bigger vision. #Quote by Nikki Sixx
Creativity quotes by Alicia Suskin Ostriker
#180. The appropriation of the creativity-procreativity metaphor by women is a conscious challenge to traditional poetics and beyond that to traditional metaphysics, for the gynocentric vision is not that Logos condescends to incarnate itself, but that Flesh becomes Word. #Quote by Alicia Suskin Ostriker
Creativity quotes by Nicholas Kardaras
#181. If you really want a child to thrive and blossom, lose the screens for the first few years of their lives. During those key developmental periods, let them engaging creative play. Legos are always great, as they encourage creativity and the hand-eye coordination nurtures synaptic growth. Let them explore their surroundings and allow them opportunities to experience nature. . Activities like cooking and playing music also have been shown to help young children thrive developmentally. But most importantly, let them experience boredom; there is nothing healthier for a child then to learn how to use their own interior resources to work through the challenges of being bored. This then acts as the fertile ground for developing their powers of observation, cultivating patience and developing an active imagination-- the most developmentally and neurosynaptically important skill that they can learn. #Quote by Nicholas Kardaras
Creativity quotes by Edward Abbey
#182. Where all think alike there is little danger of innovation. #Quote by Edward Abbey

Creativity quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#184. Imagination is absolutely critical to the quality of our lives. Our imagination enables us to leave our routine everyday existence by fantasizing about travel, food, sex, falling in love, or having the last word - all the things that make life interesting. Imagination gives us the opportunity to envision new possibilities - it is an essential launchpad for making our hopes come true. It fires our creativity, relieves our boredom, alleviates our pain, enhances our pleasure, and enriches our most intimate relationships. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk

#190. If it's a pure expression of yourself no matter what it is or what medium, it's going to shine. It's going to resonate. You could look inside of yourself and you could have a canvas and you could paint a dot in it, but if that is where your creative purpose is taking you then it needs to be that dot. #Quote by Rainn Wilson
Creativity quotes by Kathy Ireland
#191. Maintain a good balance. A personal life adds dimensions to your professional life and vice versa. It helps nurture creativity through a deeper understanding of yourself. #Quote by Kathy Ireland
Creativity quotes by Dmitry Merezhkovsky
#192. Before us is mighty, so to speak, transformative and preparatory work. From a period which is creative, immediate and elemental, we must proceed to a period which is critical, conscious and cultural. These are the two worlds between which exists the entire abyss. The contemporary generation has the misfortune of being born between these two worlds, before this abyss. Herein is explained its frailty, diseased anxiety, hungry search for new ideals and a certain fateful impotency in all of its efforts. The best youth and vigor of talent is not expended on vital creativity but on an internal destructiveness and struggle with the past, on the passage across the abyss to that land, to that shore, to the frontiers of a free and divine idealism. How many people are perishing in this passage or are losing their strength irrevocably!...

("On The Reasons For The Decline And On The New Tendencies In Contemporary Literature") #Quote by Dmitry Merezhkovsky

#193. You don't get lucky without preparation, and there's no sense in being prepared if you're not open to the possibility of a glorious accident. #Quote by Twyla Tharp
