"If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve. Do what you love, and don't stop until you get what you love. Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities, don't compromise, and don't waste time. Start now. Not 20 years from now, not two weeks from now. Now."
"Divergent thinking isn't the same as creativity. I define creativity as the process of having original ideas that have value. Divergent thinking isn't a synonym but is an essential capacity for creativity. It is the ability to see lots of possible answers to a question, lots of possible ways to interpret a question, to think laterally, to think not just in linear or convergent ways, to see multiple answers, not one."
"Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it's the only way you can do anything really good."

"There are no formulas in creative work. I do many variations, which is a question of curiosity. I arrive at many different configurations - some just slight variations, others more radical - of an original idea. It is a game of evolution."
"Failure is built into creativity... the creative act involves this element of 'newness' and 'experimentalism,' then one must expect and accept the possibility of failure."
"What's the most resilient parasite? An idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules."
"The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones."
Creativity is taking what's already present and connecting them in ways that haven't been done previously.
