Creative Quotations from . . .
Arnold Bennett
(1867-1931) born on
May 27
English novelist. He was noted for his realistic work about "Five Towns."
         
   
F
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.

R
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.
A
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.
N
It is easier to go down a hill than up, but the view is from the top.
K
The price of justice is eternal publicity.
