徒然なるままに (8) 創造性、創造力の醸成 ／ Writings with idle ramblings (8) Fostering creativity and creative ability

I believe that creativity and creative power do not come from forcing oneself to have or acquire opinions, ideas, or thoughts that are different from those of others, but come naturally from mixing as organically and effectively as possible what each of us experiences at various stages of life.
I believe that creativity and creative power can be acquired by anyone who has the ability to face the problems and wonders we encounter, and the ability to solve them, or to sustain the pursuit of them, if we make the effort to sustain them.
