    The Best Quotes From Oscar Wilde on Writing and Creativity The Best Quotes From Oscar Wilde on Writing and Creativity Presentation Transcript

    • THE BEST QUOTES FROM Oscar Wilde ON WRITING AND CREATIVITY
    • As one of the most celebrated writers of the 19th century, Oscar Wilde knew a thing or two about writing and creativity.
    • As Wilde once said, “The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.”
    • So, we’re passing on his advice about advice. ADVICE THIS WAY Keep clicking to get Wilde’s most famous quotes about writing and creativity.
    • 1 IT’S OKAY TO BEND THE RULES.
    • “A writer is someone who has taught his mind to misbehave.”
    • 2 BE CONCISE.
    • “I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
    • 3 IMPROVE YOUR WRITING BY READING THE WORK OF PEOPLE YOU ADMIRE.
    • “It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.”
    • 4 QUALITY CONTENT IS SUBJECTIVE. GOOD WRITING IS CONSTANT.
    • “There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
    • 5 DON’T BE AFRAID TO STEP OUTSIDE YOUR CONTENT COMFORT ZONE.
    • “An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.”
    • 6 DON’T LET THE FEAR OF FAILURE PREVENT YOU FROM PUBLISHING. EVERYONE FAILS.
    • “Experience is merely the name men gave to their mistakes.”
    • 7 WRITING CAN BE PAINFUL, BUT INCREDIBLY REWARDING.
    • “Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?”
    • 8 BEING CRITICAL OF YOUR WORK MAKES IT EVEN BETTER.
    • “The imagination imitates. It is the critical spirit that creates.”
    • 9 DON’T OBSESS OVER PERFECTION. AT A CERTAIN POINT YOU’RE WASTING TIME.
    • “I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.”
    • 10 DON’T GET STUCK CREATING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
    • “Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.”
    • 11 DON’T MIMIC OTHER PEOPLE’S WRITING STYLE.
    • “They are always asking a writer why he does not write like somebody else, or a painter why he does not paint like somebody else, quite oblivious of the fact that if either of them did anything of the kind he would cease to be an artist.”
    • 12 DON’T THINK YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY. YOUR POINT OF VIEW IS UNIQUE.
    • “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
