Are you like me, sometimes needing inspiration and wondering where to find it? I have always loved reading interesting quotes, the type of quotes that jump out at you and make you go ” Whoa! “. Whenever I come across a particularly good one, I tend to write it down so that I’ll be able to refer to it later, perhaps when I’m in need of some inspiration.  I’ve made a list of my ten favourite creativity quotes and I hope that you find something of interest among them.  They range from the quirky to the deeply thought-provoking, but in each of them I find comfort and inspiration. For me, they are the equivalent of a rainy day fund for the spirit .  I’ve certainly been raiding it a bit during the last few weeks!
