QUOTE(S) OF THE WEEK

“Dreams become reality when we put our minds to it.” – Queen Latifah

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.” – Les Brown

“There are only two kinds of people who are really fascinating: people who know absolutely everything, and people who know absolutely nothing.” – Oscar Wilde

“The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers.” – Erich Fromm

“Aeroplanes are not designed by science, but by art in spite of some pretense and humbug to the contrary. I do not mean to suggest that engineering can do without science, on the contrary, it stands on scientific foundations, but there is a gap between scientific research and the engineering product which has to be bridged by the art of the engineer.” – John D. North

“The future doesn’t exist. The only thing that exists is now and our memory of what happened in the past. But because we invented the idea of a future, we’re the only animal that realized we can affect the future by what we do today.” – David Suzuki

“You never lose a dream; it just incubates as a hobby.” – Larry Page

“Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be.” – Khalil Gibran

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

“Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn’t be done.” – Amelia Earhart

“A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.” – Jack Dempsey

“It is important for scientists to be aware of what our discoveries mean, socially and politically.  It’s a noble goal that science should be apolitical, acultural, and asocial, but it can’t be, because it’s done by people who are all those things.” – Mae Jemison

“Art has a double face, of expression and illusion, just like science has a double face: the reality of error and the phantom of truth.” – René Daumal

“Art and science have their meeting point in method.” – Edward Bulwer-Lytton

“All the passion and all the reward lies on the other side of doing the work.” – Joshua Fields Millburn

“To repeat what others have said, requires education; to challenge it, requires brains.” – Mary Pettibone Poole

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.
