11 Inspirational Thoughts About Creativity:
  1. I will master something, then the creativity will come. Japanese Proverb
  2. If you’re going to create, create a lot. Creativity is not like playing the slot machines, where failure to win means you go home broke. With creativity, if you don’t win, you’re usually no worse off than if you hadn’t played. Scott Adams 
  3. The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.Albert Einstein 
  4. Conditions for creativity are to be puzzled; to concentrate; to accept conflict and tension; to be born everyday; to feel a sense of self. Erich Fromm 
  5. You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is, in the end, more difficult than opening the doors to the mysteries of the universe. Daisaku Ikeda 
  6. Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by orginality, overcomes everything. George Lois 
  7. If you want to be creative, stay in part a child, with the creativity and invention that characterizes children before they are deformed by adult society. Jean Piaget 
  8. Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't "try" to do things. You simply "must" do things. Ray Bradbury 
  9. Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. Scott Adams 
  10. If your life is free of failures, you're not taking enough risks. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
  11. The opposite of play isn't work. It's depression. Brian Sutton Smith
