Notes on Creativity

quick thumbnail sketch of FLlW by James Polk

Creativity emulates, it never imitates. ---Frank Lloyd Wright

Creativity is the real magic of our universe. It is the shape of our courage and the force of our souls. Creativity is the matrimonial language of form and space, consummated in the physical and spiritual expressions of humanity.
---Adriana Diaz

Creativity is a type of learning process where the teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.
---Arthur Koestler

When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
---Buckminster Fuller

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
---Erich Fromm

Odd how the creative power at once brings the whole universe to order.
---Virginia Woolf

All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
---Pablo Picasso

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
---Albert Einstein

Creativity is what happened before someone points to an object of beauty and says, "I've made up my mind, I want one exactly like that," never after.
---James Polk
