Without freedom of choice there is no creativity.
– Capt. James T. Kirk
My mother, a teacher, encouraged me to use my creativity as an actual way to make a living, and my father, a Mississippi physician, did two things. First, he taught me that all human beings should be treated equally because no one is better than anyone else, and he never pressured me to become a doctor.

I describe management as arts, crafts and science. It is a practice that draws on arts, craft and science and there is a lot of craft – meaning experience – there is a certain amount of craft meaning insight, creativity and vision, and there is the use of science, technique or analysis.
– Henry Mintzberg
For notes related to books I’m writing, I’ve wondered whether I should organize my notes better, but I do find that the action or scrolling through them and seeing odd juxtapositions of ideas helps to stimulate my own ideas and creativity. I worry that if I kept the notes in a highly-structured way, I might lose some of these benefits.
– Gretchen Rubin
I have more faith in doing something creative for a cable station or something like Yahoo or Google or Amazon. What Netflix did with ‘House of Cards’ and David Fincher was brilliant. That is inspiring to me. I think there is more chance for creativity in animation, it just hasn’t happened there yet.

You can look at Bad Religion, and, really, almost everything I’ve ever done was an exercise in creativity. I’ve always had a desire to challenge and question authority, and that’s where the fire inside comes from. I challenged authority out of a desire to make things better, not to be nihilistic about it.
– Greg Graffin
Science means constantly walking a tightrope between blind faith and curiosity; between expertise and creativity; between bias and openness; between experience and epiphany; between ambition and passion; and between arrogance and conviction – in short, between an old today and a new tomorrow.
– Heinrich Rohrer
You are preparing yourself for a scene, and the most important thing is to remain emotionally available and remain in the moment with your scene partner. You don’t want to let your own self-consciousness block the flow of creativity that’s coming out so that you can act and react, and play what the scene is all about.
– Gale Harold
