Creatively inspiring, but. . .
Of course they are. Famous quotes and cliches about creativity and innovation are a dime a dozen and scattered everywhere on the Internet — some accurately, others not so much.
Instead of quoting great minds — you won't find any quotations by Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, or Rollo May on this page — these quotes (a new one appears at random above each time you visit) were carefully culled from the writings of many unknown creatives — modern day artists, writers, performers, educators, and innovators persistent in cultivating their creative lives despite the odds and in the face of many challenges. What else do they have in common? They are all contributing authors to Creativity Portal.
Enjoy these unique quotes not found in any book (at least they weren't at the time of quoting here), which do include a few of today's leading creativity experts, writing coaches, and innovation authors like Eric Maisel, Jill Badonsky, SARK, Ashfaq Ishaq, Edward Glassman, Hal Zina Bennett, and Judy Reeves, to name a few.
Welcome to the 21st century with new creative perspectives, changing global dynamics, and collaborative technologies for innovation! These quotes will energize you, inspire you, and motivate you in your own creative life.
