Jerry Wennstrom Quotes

Quotes by Jerry Wennstrom - (12 quotes)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Art category:

Art has a way of taking care of itself. Creativity that is limited and commodified in the classroom is sprayed out for free on the subway wall. An educational institution that attempts to tame the wilds of creation or eliminate the poetic sensibility of its people does not survive for very long. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Artists category:

True creative breakthrough comes out of an inevitable moment where the artist knows he/she will have to risk it all in order to win the favor of the muse. If he/she is lucky enough to win her over and receives the gift of inspiration, the creation will be an outrageous, defining act of power and it will reflect something universal. Creations of this nature express the spirit of the time for all of us. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Challenge category:

A genuinely creative environment would have to include all we do in whatever environment we are in. Creative-doing would have to be made a priority! We can do this by seeking a creative solution to every challenge that comes our way. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Change category:

Two key experiences led to and supported fundamental change for me... the allurement of inspiration with its ongoing magic... the catalyst of change that comes from boring, useless suffering, which is often the result of living outside of one's true place of freedom in the world. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Creativity category:

There are creative seeds buried in people, no matter how oppressed they have been, and you can find these seeds in their stories. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Mysteries category:

When we find courage enough to sacrifice our ego-identity and allow the mystery a say in what we do, there is a universal quality that gets expressed. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Questions category:

Through deep and honest questioning I can begin to open to some inspired new possibility that I may have been sensing at an intuitive level all along. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Renewal category:

It was not an act of destruction. It was a leap towards - a kind of quantum leap - into something that I didn't yet know what it was. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Sacrifice category:

Sacrifice is to make sacred. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Solitude category:

To leave or disassociate from society in order to find one's true place in the world is the ultimate act of responsibility. When we can be true to our own inner calling and follow a path that takes us away from society, there is the inevitable return. With this return we bring back a deeper sense of purpose and the unique gifts that might only be found in the desert of self-discovery. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Uniqueness category:

And there lies the inherent loneliness to go your own way, which is the way of your own mystery... there's no reference point... It's going to be about being so completely who you are that what ultimately shines in the world is a unique expression. And we love that uniqueness and we're terrified of it at the same time. We want to look like something recognizable. (Jerry Wennstrom)

Jerry Wennstrom - From the Universe category:

There is reference to a wild and potentially dangerous universe that one must experience alone, internally and externally. At the same time, the statements leave open the unreasonable possibility that the adventure is informed, supported and celebrated by a conscious universe - a universe that we might rely on. (Jerry Wennstrom)
