Creative Quotations from . . .
Arnold Bennett
(1867-1931) born on
May 27
English novelist. He was noted for his realistic work about "Five Towns."
In search of ideas I spent yesterday morning in walking about, and went to the stores and bought things in four departments. A wonderful and delightful way of spending time. I think this sort of activity does stimulate creative ideas.

There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.
To the artist is sometimes granted a sudden, transient insight which serves in this matter for experience. A flash, and where previously the brain held a dead fact, the soul grasps a living truth! At moments we are all artists.
It is easier to go down a hill than up, but the view is from the top.
The price of justice is eternal publicity.
