A Quote by Clare Boothe Luce on creativity, deed, egotism, facts, idealism, lies, nature, nobility, romance, speech, and words

Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts. . . . It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forebearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, that-being what it is-it falls so short of in fact and in deed.

Clare Boothe Luce (1903 - 1987)

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on creativity and thought

Being is thoughtless-beyond and beneath all categories of thought. Expression is the realization of creative thought. Being is still; expression, moving. But then if I do not strive, who will?

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Charlotte Brontë on creativity and gifts

The writer who possesses the creative gift owns something of which he is not always master - something that, at times, strangely wills and works for itself.

A Quote by Charles Proteus Steinmetz on creativity, day, force, happiness, history, learning, men, people, power, scientists, spirituality, study, and world

Spiritual power is a force which history clearly teaches has been the greatest force in the development of men. Ye. we have been merely playing with it and never have really studied it as we have the physical forces. Some day people will learn that material things do not bring happiness, and are of little use in making people creative and powerful. Then the scientists of the world will turn their laboratories over to the study of spiritual forces which have hardly been scratched.
