Creativity

“Technical skill is mastery of complexity, while creativity is mastery of simplicity.”
Erik Christopher Zeeman

“Above all, we are coming to understand that the arts incarnate the creativity of a free people. When the creative impulse cannot flourish, when it cannot freely select its methods and objects, when it is deprived of spontaneity, then society severs.”
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

“Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.”
Charles Mingus

“We need creativity in order to break free from the temporary structures that have been set up by a particular sequence of experience: Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.”
Edward de Bono

“Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That, and surprise.”
Julia Cameron
