Thoughts from Aristotle ...

Do the quotes below relate to creativity and creative problem solving ? You decide ...

“The aim of art is not to represent the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance”

“We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence is then not an act, but a habit.”

“There was never a genius without a tincture of madness.”

“Anaxagoras avails himself of Mind as an artificial device for producing order, and drags it in whenever he is at a loss to explain some necessary result; but otherwise he makes anything rather than Mind the cause of what happens.”

“Happiness belongs to the self-sufficient.”

“Thinking is sometimes injurious to health.”

“Probable impossibilities are to be preferred to improbable possibilities.”

                                   Aristotle, right, speaking with his mentor, Plato.
