Have you heard this cool quote before?

“You can’t use up creativity,” Maya Angelou stresses. “The more you use, the more you have. It is our shame and our loss when we discourage people from being creative. We set apart those people who should not be set apart, people whom we assume don’t have a so-called artistic temperament, and that is stupid.

Too often creativity is smothered rather than nurtured. There has to be a climate in which new ways of thinking, perceiving, questioning are encouraged. People also have to feel they are needed.”

I love this quote so much. I feel like sometimes I’m worried to be creative because I don’t want to use it all up! This is a great reminder that creativity should be cultivated. I made a printable with the beginning of the quote so I could hang it on my wall, and look at it often!

Now I’m sharing it with you. Download this printable below. It’s sized 5 x 7, so you should be able to go any size smaller than that with no problems. Enjoy . . . and keep being creative!
