Blogging from A to Z Challenge: Q is for Quotes on Creativity


My theme for the Blogging from A to Z challenge is Creativity. Here are some quotes to inspire you in your pursuit of your creative endeavors. I think they are all gems.

“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up” ~ Pablo Picasso

“Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people” ~ Leo Burnett

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

“Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.” ~ Erich Fromm

“Creativity is a natural extension of our enthusiasm.” ~ Earl Nightingale

“Creativity comes from looking for the unexpected and stepping outside your own experience.” ~ Masaru Ibuka

“Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That, and surprise.” ~ Julia Cameron

“Creativity is not just for artists. It’s for businesspeople looking for a new way to close a sale; it’s for engineers trying to solve a problem; it’s for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way.” ~ Twyla Tharp

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not’?” ~ George Bernard Shaw

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.” ~ Dr. Seuss

Is one of these quotes your favorite? Do you have another quote on creativity to share?

  1. All great quotes, Linda. I like the quote referencing mystery and surprise the most. Creativity is the force that drives progress, I think. I saw a quote that said something like: The creative adult is one who survived childhood.

    Love the quotes, Linda. One of my favorite quotes on creativity is framed in my office. “The writer who possesses the creative gift owns something of which he is not always master–something that at times strangely wills and works for itself.” ~ Charlotte Bronte

  3. Lovely quotes!
    I love anything by Dr. Seuss! ❤

  4. I have Dr. Seuss all over my room. And a engraved quote hanging about the places you can go. I believe every one of his books teaches great life lessons. Thanks for some great quotes, Linda.

  5. Reblogged this on Aubrey Wynne Historical Romance and commented:
    These are some of the best quotes I have read in a long time. I thank Linda Covella for posting them and having the stamina for the A-Z blogging challenge.
