Osho

Criss Jami
“When you're socially awkward, you're isolated more than usual, and when you're isolated more than usual, your creativity is less compromised by what has already been said and done. All your hope in life starts to depend on your craft, so you try to perfect it. One reason I stay isolated more than the average person is to keep my creativity as fierce as possible. Being the odd one out may have its temporary disadvantages, but more importantly, it has its permanent advantages.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Terence McKenna
“The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas.

It is the night sea journey, the lone fisherman on a tropical sea with his nets, and you let these nets down - sometimes, something tears through them that leaves them in shreds and you just row for shore, and put your head under your bed and pray.

At other times what slips through are the minutiae, the minnows of this ichthyological metaphor of idea chasing.
But, sometimes, you can actually bring home something that is food, food for the human community that we can sustain ourselves on and go forward.”
Terence McKenna

Criss Jami
“I think a lot of psychopaths are just geniuses who drove so fast that they lost control.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Mike  Norton
“Solitude is the soil in which genius is planted, creativity grows, and legends bloom; faith in oneself is the rain that cultivates a hero to endure the storm, and bare the genesis of a new world, a new forest.”
Mike Norton, White Mountain

Osho
“You become more divine as you become more creative. All the religions of the world have said God is the creator. I don’t know whether he is the creator or not, but one thing I know: the more creative you become, the more godly you become. When your creativity comes to a climax, when your whole life becomes creative, you live in God. So he must be the creator because people who have been creative have been closest to him. Love what you do. Be meditative while you are doing it – whatsoever it is”
Osho

for they teach us to see the world through different eyes.”
Jacob Nordby, Pearls of Wisdom: 30 Inspirational Ideas to live your best life now

“Fashion does not have to prove that it is serious. It is the proof that intelligent frivolity can be something creative and positive”
Karl Lagerfeld

Toba Beta

there are three things that can show you the way:
instinct to survive, the knowledge of navigation,
creative imagination. Without them, you are lost.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Ken Robinson
“Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status.”
Ken Robinson

Criss Jami
“Whenever I think of something but can't think of what it was I was thinking of, I can't stop thinking until I think I'm thinking of it again. I think I think too much.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Benjamin Alire Sáenz
“What is this thing you call substance abuse?
All I wanna do is forget and get loose.
Drinking and smoking over and over
What's so great about a life that's sober?

There's nothing cool about being young
When the monsters of night have stolen the sun.

I'm tired of searching for words in the sky.
All I wanna do is drink and die.
Nothing is real. It's all a big lie.
All I wanna do is drink and die.

There's nothing cool about being young
When the monsters of night have stolen the sun.”
Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Last Night I Sang to the Monster

Joe Hill
“Everyone lives in two worlds,” Maggie said, speaking in an absentminded sort of way while she studied her letters. “There’s the real world, with all its annoying facts and rules. In the real world, there are things that are true and things that aren’t. Mostly the real world s-s-s-suh-sucks. But everyone also lives in the world inside their own head. An inscape, a world of thought. In a world made of thought—in an inscape—every idea is a fact. Emotions are as real as gravity. Dreams are as powerful as history. Creative people, like writers, and Henry Rollins, spend a lot of their time hanging out in their thoughtworld. S-s-strong creatives, though, can use a knife to cut the stitches between the two worlds, can bring them together. Your bike. My tiles. Those are our knives.”
Joe Hill, NOS4A2

Alice Walker
“And so our mothers and grandmothers have, more often than not anonymously, handed on the creative spark, the seed of the flower they themselves never hoped to see - or like a sealed letter they could not plainly read. ”
Alice Walker

“Joy is but the sign that creative emotion is fulfilling its purpose.”
Charles Du Bos

Hugh MacLeod
“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kidergarten. Then wen you hit puberty they take te crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on agebra, history, ect. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, 'I'd like my crayons back, please.”
Hugh MacLeod

Michael Michalko
“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
Michael Michalko

Julia Cameron
“The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.”
Julia Cameron

“All you have to do is put one word after another, and remember how great it feels to be a writer.”
Stephanie Lennox

Rebecca McNutt
“Mandy would much rather have imaginary friends who were real than real friends who were imaginary.”
Rebecca McNutt, Smog City
