Here are some of the best quotes on creativity I've found:
Anxiety is part of creativity, the need to get something out, the need to be rid of something or to get in touch with something within.
Anxiety is the hand maiden of creativity.
T. S. Eliot
Creativity comes from a conflict of ideas.
Creativity comes from looking for the unexpected and stepping outside your own experience.
Creativity has more to do with the elimination of the inessential than with inventing something new.
Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
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, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.
A city scape of Chicago. The lady just fit the scene - one person in the midst of millions - she's still significant and important.
