A thought on creativity for our consideration today.


Talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships. —Michael Jordan
Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe. —Saint Augustine
True humility is being able to accept criticisms as graciously as we accept compliments. —Sabrina Newby
In matters of principle, stand like a rock; in matters of taste, swim with the current.  —Thomas Jefferson
Each person has an ideal, a hope, a dream which represents the soul. We must give to it the warmth of love, the light of understanding and the essence of encouragement. —Colby Dorr Dam
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us. —Alexander Graham Bell
Mistakes are the portals of discovery. —James Joyce
I don't want to live in the kind of world where we don't look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can't change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit. —Charles de Lint
The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination. —Tommy Lasorda
The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives. —Russell M. Nelson
Confidence comes not from always being right, but from not fearing to be wrong. —Peter McIntyre
The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Generosity consists not the sum given, but the manner in which it is bestowed. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you're willing to pay the price. —Vince Lombardi
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you! —Christian D. Larson
The first time I read an excellent book, it is to me just as if I had gained a new friend. —Oliver Goldsmith
