Thinking creatively

As the great Continental philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche asserted, we only begin to think and live creatively when we no longer expect the world to answer and mirror our assumptions about ourselves. Otherwise we are likely to become dull and complacent:

Hail, continual plodders, hail! Lengthen out the tedious tale, Pedant, still in head and knee,

Dull, of humour not a trace Permanently commonplace, Sansgénieetsansesprit! (‘Lacking creativity and no wit!’)
