Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

 

“Too many families and schools discourage creativity. I left home because I was determined to do what I wanted to do.”

       ------- Edward Albee, Pulitzer Prize-winning Playwright

 

“It’s my belief that an artist should give people new glasses and a new cubistic approach to looking at themselves.”

       ---------- Julie Taymor, Theater and Film Director

 

“I’m always trying to do things that no one has ever seen before.”

       ---------- James Rosenquist, Artist

 

“I think to be creative you have to resist taking the easy path.

       --------- Daniel Libeskind, Architect

 

“If you think “I want to be famous,” or “I want to make a lot of money,” my sense is that you don’t go into most creative jobs.”

       -------- David Halberstam, Pulitzer Prize-wiining author

 

“The motivation for creativity is most often the need to express your ideas to other people.”

       -------- Spike Lee, Film Director

 

“We knew we had something so huge that Steve (Jobs) and I couldn’t do it by ourselves.”

       -------- Steve Wozniak, Co-founder of Apple Computer

 

“I have always felt that, for me, creativity was really using excess energy.”

        -------- Dale Chihuly, Renowned Glass Sculptor

 

“People get enraged at me because they think women should not write about the things I write about, because the things that I write about, in some way, break with their notion of what a woman should be.”

       --------- Erica Jong, Best-selling Author

 

“There’s a conflict between professionalism that calls for minimizing risk, while creativity encourages risk.”

       ---------- Milton Glaser, Designer
