‘Creativity’ is a special talent or skill through which something new, unique and refreshing is created. It’s not blind copying but an art of creating something that is worth enough to talk about!
An enchanting music or song, a haunting poem or painting, a unique photo, a reverberating speech or idea, or anything unique is a wonderful creation by the rare breed called creative minds. These creative minds need a fuel, mood, or an environment to trigger creativity. The catalyst for these creative minds is sheer ‘Madness‘.
Creative people love madness. They love to explore the unknown horizons that others fear to attempt. They break the conventional rules and they are unorthodox. A fluid called ‘Madness‘ runs through their veins to make them different from others.
Creative people view a crazy world through ‘Madness‘. They are able to think out-of-the-box and create magic through their works.
Here are a few quotes about madness and creativity:
“No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness.” ― Aristotle
“Madness in great ones must not unwatched go.” ― William Shakespeare, Hamlet
“The creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.” — Frank Barron
“It is only through mystery and madness that the soul is revealed” ― Thomas Moore
“Madness is the acme of intelligence.” – Naguib Mahfouz
“Madness need not be all breakdown. It may also be break-through.” — R. D. Laing
“If at first the idea is not totally absurd then there is no hope for it.” — Albert Einstein
“The extreme limit of wisdom–that is what the public calls madness.” — Jean Cocteau
“A person needs a little madness, or else they never dare cut the rope and be free.” — Nikos Kazantzakis

This is the sheer brilliance of madness – it makes an ordinary person ‘Creative‘.
