What They Said About Creativity
Here’s the thing about this collection of quotations: it was compiled with very little search engine involvement. Some of these great sayings, by an incredible range of people, can’t even be found anywhere else online! This is because most of the quotations were collected over many years, starting long before there even was an “online.” And they were mostly collected the old-fashioned way, i.e. hand copied from the pages of books, or torn from magazines.
You can tell the collection is made with maximum human intervention. In the quotations about creativity, not all of them contain the keyword “creativity.” Yet, that is what they are about.
The creativity quotations, several pages of them, are at Virtual Venice.
