Some Thoughts About Creativity

Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play.                                                    Henri Matisse

Those who do not think outside the box are easily contained.         Nicolas Manetta

Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.              Kurt Vonnegut

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.    Michelangelo

The Possible’s slow fuse is lit by the imagination.                Emily Dickenson

Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.                              George Smith Patton, “War as I Knew It,” 1947
