Wednesday Inspirations: The Creative Life

For today’s Wednesday Inspiration I’m looking to people who know what’s up about what, for me, this year is all about: getting my creative groove back. Need some inspiration about the art of creating? I always do!

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.” -George Bernard Shaw

“Imagination imitates. It is the critical spirit that creates.” -Oscar Wilde

“The chief enemy of creativity is good sense” – Pablo Picasso

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” – Scott Adams

“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it” – Salvador Dali

“You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star” – Nietzsche

“There is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.”  — Martha Graham

“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The non-existent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.” Nikos Kazantzakis

“I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.” John Cage

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” – Kurt Vonnegut

“Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.” -Stella Adler

“In the world of the dreamer there was solitude: all the exaltations and joys came in the moment of preparation for living. They took place in solitude. But with action came anxiety, and the sense of insuperable effort made to match the dream, and with it came weariness, discouragement, and the flight into solitude again. And then in solitude, in the opium den of remembrance, the possibility of pleasure again.” -Anaïs Nin
