Quotes about Creativity and The Creatives

Posted on: April 3, 2011

I just got my lovely “Creating the Creatives” mini-business cards which have quotes about creativity on one side and my details on the other 🙂 In searching for the quotes I found some really interesting ones which I would like to share with you:

“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

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” — Walt Disney

“What is an artist? A provincial who finds himself somewhere between a physical reality and a metaphysical one…. It’s this in-between that I’m calling a province, this frontier country between the tangible world and the intangible one—which is really the realm of the artist.” — Federico Fellini

Childrens play and high accomplishments in art science and are traditionally called creative but any type of activity or product whether ideational physical or social can be creative..Characteristics.Creativity has been associated with a wide range of behavioral and mental characteristics including associations between semantically remote ideas and contexts application of multiple perspectives curiosity flexibility in thought and action rapid generation of multiple qualitatively different solutions and answers to problems and questions tolerance for ambiguity and uncertainty and unusual uses of familiar objects..Biographical studies of exceptionally creative individuals have uncovered recurring features. There is no evidence for an inverse relation between quantity and quality instead the two appear to be correlated. Exceptionally creative accomplishments are complex evolving outcomes of long-term efforts sustained by high levels of intrinsic motivation often in the absence of societal rewards..There are many examples of exceptionally creative individuals who led troubled and turbulent lives and there is widespread belief in a relation between creativity and mental disorder but it has not been conclusively shown that the more frequent such disorders are the higher the level of creativity..The rate of professional productivity in art science and other creative endeavors increases rapidly at the beginning of a career reaches a peak in midlife and then slowly declines.
