“Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected.” ~ William Plomer
“Unless you move, the place where you are is the place you will always be.” ~Ashleigh Brilliant.
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both. — From over a century ago - French writer, François-René de Chateaubriand
“You can teach a child how to think, but not what to think” ~Margaret Mead
…freedom… before fear
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation” -Plato
“Why do cars need to go fast?” ~Mr Four.
The planet does not need more ‘successful people’. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. It needs people to live well in their places. It needs people with moral courage willing to join the struggle to make the world habitable and humane and these qualities have little to do with success as our culture is the set. — ~Tenzin Gyatso, The 14th Dalai Lama

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus” -Mark Twain.

Creatives are dreamers, innovators are builders.
“Our number one value isn’t in any of the skills we have. It’s that we’re essentially curious” -Jim Coudal.
“The creative adult is the child who survived” ~U. LeGuin.
The best creative solutions don’t come from finding good answers to the questions that are presented. They come from inventing new questions. — ~Seth Godin. Question the question.
