Creativity is scary, confusing, messy, fraught with mistakes…and what you were made for.
“Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity.” ~T. S. Eliot
“Creativity takes courage.” ~Henri Matisse
“Creativity–like human life itself–begins in darkness. Creativity is always a leap of faith. You’re faced with a blank page, blank easel, or an empty stage.” ~Julia Cameron
“The poet’s eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, doth glance from heaven to Earth, from Earth to heaven; and as imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen turns them to shape, and gives to airy nothing a local habitation and a name.” ~William Shakespeare
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” (See God’s creation of humans below. ;>) ~Scott Adams
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) “And then he created humans in his own image.” (Genesis 1:27)
“Creativity is not a talent, it’s a way of operating.” ~John Cleese
