More Quotations About Creativity

color bar

Recently, my online writers' group had a chat about creativity. In the course of our conversation, we realized how difficult it is to define this quality and discovered that it's impossible to dissect.

We also arrived at another realization: that any area of life can be both a source of creativity and a way to express it. With this in mind, I gathered the quotations below.

May they enhance your own creativity, however you choose to express it.
