QUOTE(S) OF THE WEEK

“All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions.” – Leonardo da Vinci

“There’s nothing wrong with being afraid. It’s not the absence of fear; it’s overcoming it. Sometimes you’ve got to blast through and have faith.” – Emma Watson

“Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.” – Henry Ford

“Imagination comes first in both artistic and scientific creations, but in science there is only one answer and that has to be correct.” – James Watson

“I would rather regret the things I have done than the things that I have not.” – Lucille Ball

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” — Steve Jobs

“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“The power of imagination makes us infinite.” – John Muir

The articles are from a variety of sources and, therefore, do not necessarily reflect the views of the NCN.  Despite our best efforts, links may fail without warning since each news source posts and archives its articles differently.

The National Creativity Network believes that by fostering creativity in our society as a whole, and specifically with future generations, America can remain a leader in innovation and free enterprise. The very future of our communities and institutions depends on our ability to nurture and harness imagination to creatively solve problems. If creativity is to be nurtured, systems, institutions and networks must be transformed.

The opportunities that emerge to transform our nation are largely dependent upon the degree to which we are connected to each other. Our connection will become a catalyst:

  • to enhance the flow of relevant information,
  • and to improve the ease with which key nodes of creativity, be they in the domains of Education, Commerce, Culture or across disciplines, can gain access to the best thinking, best questions, and most successful practices as well as other resources their ventures may require.

Our strategy is to engage thought leaders across North America to create a powerful network for transformation.

QUOTE(S) OF THE WEEK

“There is an art to science, and science in art; the two are not enemies, but different aspects of the whole.” – Isaac Asimov

“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.” – Peter Drucker

“All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward.” – Ellen Glasgow

“Do something. Do anything. Get going. Now.” – Tom Peters

“Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.” – Pablo Picasso

“What would life be without art? Science prolongs life. To consist of what—eating, drinking, and sleeping? What is the good of living longer if it is only a matter of satisfying the requirements that sustain life? All this is nothing without the charm of art.” – Sarah Bernhardt

The National Creativity Network believes that by fostering creativity in our society as a whole, and specifically with future generations, America can remain a leader in innovation and free enterprise. The very future of our communities and institutions depends on our ability to nurture and harness imagination to creatively solve problems. If creativity is to be nurtured, systems, institutions and networks must be transformed.

The opportunities that emerge to transform our nation are largely dependent upon the degree to which we are connected to each other. Our connection will become a catalyst:

  • to enhance the flow of relevant information,
  • and to improve the ease with which key nodes of creativity, be they in the domains of Education, Commerce, Culture or across disciplines, can gain access to the best thinking, best questions, and most successful practices as well as other resources their ventures may require.

Our strategy is to engage thought leaders across North America to create a powerful network for transformation.
