Quotes: Ken Robinson 6

03 Apr

“Private imaginings may have no outcomes in the world at all. Creativity does. Being creative involves doing something.”

“Words help us to think about some types of experience, but they are relatively useless in dealing with others […] If the ideas in music could be expressed in words, there’d be no need to write the music in the first place.”

“I don’t mean to say that being wrong is the same thing as being creative but if you’re not prepared to be wrong, it’s unlikely that you’ll ever come up with anything original.”

“In any creative process the focus of our attention has to be right. Although there are always points where criticism is necessary, generative thinking has to be given time to flower.”

“Change the question and whole new horizons may open up to us. The true value of a generative idea is that it leads to new sorts of questions.”

– Ken Robinson: Out of Our Minds, Chapter 6
