‘ It is well for people who think to change their minds occasionally in order to keep them clean. For those who do not think, it is best to at least rearrange their prejudices once in a while.’
— Luther Burbank

— Leo Burnett

‘Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself.’
— Truman Capote

‘Creativity is the marvellous capacity to grasp mutually distinct realities and draw a spark from their juxtaposition.’
— Max Ernst

‘Creativity, as has been said, consists largely of rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. Hence, to think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted.’
— George Kneller
