On Creativity....

On Creativity.... One sits down first; one thinks afterwards. Jean Cocteau There is in us a lyric germ or nucleus which deserves respect; it bids a man ponder or create; and in this dim corner of himself he can take refuge and find consolations which the society of his fellow-creatures does not provide. Norman Doulgas * An excerpt from 'An Almanac.' No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit. Ansel Adams * An excerpt from 'Photographers on Photography.'
