The Heart of Creativity


"An essential aspect of creativity
is not being afraid to fail."

Edwin Land

In honor of the upcoming Creativity Summit, today's writing is a collection of creative wisdom!


"Creativity makes a leap, 
then looks to see where it is."

Mason Cooley

"Creativity requires the courage
to let go of certainties."

Erich Fromm

"Don't think. 
Thinking is the enemy of creativity. 
It's self-conscious, 
and anything self-conscious is lousy. 
You can't try to do things. 
You simply must do things."

Ray Bradbury

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. 
Art is knowing which ones to keep."

Scott Adams

"Creativity is just connecting things. 
When you ask creative people
how they did something, they feel a little guilty
because they didn't really do it, 
they just saw something. 
It seemed obvious to them after a while. 
That's because they were able to
connect experiences they've had
and synthesize new things."

Steve Jobs
