Creative

Famous quotes containing the word creative:

    But this I know; 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.... If the result be attractive, the World will praise you, who little deserve praise; if it be repulsive, the same World will blame you, who almost as little deserve blame.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)

    Perchance the time will come when every house even will have not only its sleeping-rooms, and dining-room, and talking-room or parlor, but its thinking-room also, and the architects will put it into their plans. Let it be furnished and ornamented with whatever conduces to serious and creative thought. I should not object to the holy water, or any other simple symbol, if it were consecrated by the imagination of the worshipers.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Assuming that rapture is nature’s play with man, the Dionysian artist’s creative activity is the play with rapture.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
