A Quote by Daisetz Teitaro "D.T." Suzuki on art, creativity, justice, life, truth, and zen

The truth of Zen, just a little bit of it, is what turns one's hum drum life, a life of monotonous, uninspiring commonplaceness, into one of art, full of genuine inner creativity.

D.T. Suzuki (1870 - 1966)

A Quote by Dr. Fay B. Nash on achievement, adulthood, challenge, conquest, creativity, happiness, health, individuality, joy, leisure, people, skill, success, and work

It takes a highly intellectual individual to enjoy leisure. . . . Most of us had better count on working. What a man really wants is creative challenge with sufficient skills to bring him within the reach of success so that he may have the expanding joy of achievement. . . . Few people overwork; plenty overeat, overworry, overdrink. . . . Few realize real joy and happiness of conquest. The basis of mental health for the average adult is more work, provided the work is not mere drudgery.

A Quote by Denis Diderot on creativity, diligence, genius, nature, observation, reason, and reflection

A Quote by David N. Elkins on creativity, dance, eternity, force, life, energy, passion, and power

When we touch this domain, we are filled with the cosmic force of life itself, we sink our roots deep into the black soil and draw power and being up into ourselves. We know the energy of the numen and are saturated with power and being. We feel grounded, centered, in touch with the ancient and eternal rhythms of life. Power and passion well up like an artesian spring and creativity dances in celebration of life.

A Quote by Daisaku Ikeda on creativity, difficulty, effort, life, mystery, struggle, universe, and world

You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is, in the end, more difficult than opening the doors to the mysteries of the universe.

A Quote by Cynthia Heimel on acting, creativity, doubt, earth, and hell

When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.
