Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts.
And never hope more than you work.
-- Rita Mae Brown
Comment: Each person has a choice about who it is they create for. They can create for
self, for others, for God, or for Satan. When the basic human instincts reign, there is,
more often than not, a great risk of evil appearing.
Creativity can be described as letting go of certainties.
-- Gail Sheehy
Comment: Many creative works come about because of the basic nature of life's painfulness.
When we are writing, or painting, or composing, we
are, during the time of creativity, freed from normal
restrictions, and are opened to a wider world, where
colors are brighter, sounds clearer, and people more
wondrously complex than we normally realize.
-- Madeleine L'Engle
Comment: When we create, we are doing what the Creator did and still does.
As a man-of-war that sails through the sea, so this
earth that sails through the air. We mortals are all
on board a fast-sailing, never-sinking world-frigate,
of which God was the ship-wright . . . Thus sailing
with sealed orders, we ourselves are the repositories
of the secret packet, whose mysterious contents
we long to learn. There are no mysteries out of
-- Herman Melville
Comment: The secret packet has been revealed. The secret packet is the Holy Word, the Holy
Scripture, the Holy Bible, whose contents are both knowable and mysterious.
