Quotes

In his 2004 book " Creativity is Forever ", Gary Davis reviewed the creativity literature from 1961 to 2003 and identified 22 reoccurring personality traits of creative people. This included 16 "positive" traits (e g., independent, risk-taking, high energy, curiosity, humor, artistic, emotional) and 6 "negative" traits (e g., impulsive, hyperactive, argumentative). In her own review of the creativity literature, Bonnie Cramond found that many of these same traits overlap to a substantial degree with behavioral descriptions of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)-- including higher levels of spontaneous idea generation, mind wandering, daydreaming, sensation seeking, energy, and impulsivity."
Parent: Describing his mother, he said: "She is a brilliant grandmother. I mean, she works incredibly hard"
..."I’ll never forget the way the director, Ray Butt, introduced me to the character of Sid," Heather told the journalist Richard Webber in 2007. "He said he was a scruffy bugger who ran the local greasy café, before adding, ‘I think you’ll be just right!’"
He said: "The one thing I have learnt is that nobody gets their first seat. It is not like sport."
