Brain Dead

I am brain dead today. I've been trying to come up with a post for today. I think y'all are probably tired of my world and the Sarah Palin cr . . . er, uh . . . stuff -- yeah, that's it -- because I am, too, and try as I might to be creative, it isn't working. I finally sought help from my quotes archive to seek inspiration from greater minds than mine had to say and decided to share my findings with y'all. I hope you find these as interesting as I did.

* The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources. -- Albert Einstein

* Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous. -- Bill Moyers

* Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. -- Scott Adams

* Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can play weird; that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity. -- Charlie Mingus

* Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties. -- Erich Fromm

* The chief enemy of creativity is "good" sense. -- Pablo Picasso

* A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something. -- Frank Capra

* Creativity is not the finding of a thing, but the making something out of it after it is found. -- James Russell Lowell

* Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things. -- Ray Bradbury

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!
