When I can no longer create anything, I’ll be done for!---- Coco Chanel
The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.
The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.’ — Albert Einstein
Creative people have an abiding curiosity and an insatiable desire to learn how and why things work. They take nothing for granted. They are interested in things around them and tend to stow away bits and pieces of information in their minds for the future use. And, they have a great ability to mobilize their thinking and experiences for use in solving a new problem.’— Bill Hewlett
The key question isn't "What fosters creativity?" But it is why in God's name isn't everyone creative? Where was the human potential lost? How was it crippled? I think therefore a good question might be not why do people create? But why do people not create or innovate? We have got to abandon that sense of amazement in the face of creativity, as if it were a miracle if anybody created anything.’— Abraham Maslow
A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.’— Ayn Rand
What is creativity? I define creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing. Innovation is the production or implementation of a creative idea. If you have ideas, but don't act on them, you are imaginative but not creative.-Linda Naiman
All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.
True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.
No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
Vincent Van Gogh
The creative process is not controlled by a switch you can simply turn on or off; it's with you all the time.
I'm always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up every morning... Every day I find something creative to do with my life.
Take the obvious, add a cupful of brains, a generous pinch of imagination, a bucketful of courage and daring, stir well and bring to a boil.’— Bernard Mannes Baruch
