The Creative Mind

images  Pearl S. Buck via wikipedia

The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this:
A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive.
To him… a touch is a blow,
a sound is a noise,
a misfortune is a tragedy,
a joy is an ecstasy,
a friend is a lover,
a lover is a god,
and failure is death.”

–Pearl S. Buck

    Lovely quote, Deborah: I define myself as “mildly creative,” and I do go to extremes in my reactions (which is good and bad).

    Happy Thanksgiving! My college kids are coming in tonight πŸ™‚

    Wow, great quote, I’m not sure if I would want to be “truly creative” if I had to have all of those traits, some of them, ok… I’ve experienced them all, not all at once though. I don’t think I would be able to stay sane if that were the case, maybe that is what it takes to be truly creative, to be more than a little insane. I am bipolar though, so…
