“If creative work protects a man against mental illness, it is small wonder that he pursues it with avidity; and even if the state of mind he is seeking to avoid is no more than a mild state of depression or apathy, this still constitutes a cogent reason for engaging in creative work even when it brings no obvious external benefit in its train.” ― Anthony Storr
“Follow the path of your aroused thought, and you will soon meet this infernal inscription: There is nothing so beautiful as that which does not exist.” ― Paul Valery
“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” ― Kurt Vonnegut
“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ― Sylvia Plath
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” ― Maya Angelou
