Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, the just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.
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.
Creativity comes from a conflict of ideas.
Originality is nothing but judicious imitation.
Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.
You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.
Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people.
Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.
