Inner Vision: Quotes About Creativity

color bar

This is the third in our series of quotations. Our first, Thoughts for Inspiration, Courage, And Love was the October 2001 newsletter. All You Need is Love followed in February 2002.

They have been among our most popular newsletters. I've chosen creativity for the third subject because I feel the importance of recognizing that every living being is creative. We may not all paint, sing, write, or practice other arts, but we all create the greatest artworks in existence, our own lives. The following quotes have helped me to connect more deeply to the source of my own creativity. May they guide you as well.
