"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Is that really true today? In the world where access to information is more than easy, knowledge can be reached by anyone. But what about imagination?" "Of course technology offers beautiful and wonderful things to see but we forget too often to use our other senses which make work our imagination" "Yes, it is very important for a child to invent its own world where he could be the hero." "Naivety detaches us from the technique and allows us to invent incredible, impossible, and improbable things." "Craziness, naivety and expertise is a combination which could make your idea real one day" "What I am telling you today is to be a pioneer. Do not be afraid to imagine impossible things thanks to imagination. That's the reflection I offer you today: do not stop thinking like a child"

“I think the most important way to acquire knowledge is through reading. Do we read in Tunisia? 85% of Tunisians have never bought books. And those who read books, read 3 minutes per year on average. Do you think that a country can truly reach its full potential if its own citizens don’t invest themselves in their cultural emancipation and intellectual development? Reading is important and reading is fun.” “Every book is a way for me to get advice, to learn more. Every book will help me chose my way.” “I knew when I was 5 years old what gift God gave me – the gift of music. Little did I know then that the passion I had for music will allow me to compose symphonies which would be played in the most prestigious cultural centers in the world.” “When I composed my largest symphony, Hannibal, it took me three and a half years. At the time I was a CEO of one of the largest institutions in Morocco with 15,000 employees. How come you have such a big responsibility and find time to compose classical music, people asked me. I’ll tell you, I would sneak out of bed at two and a half in the morning, compose for two or three hours, go back to bed, take a nap and manage to be at work among the first people – That’s passion, it doesn’t come easy. You have to work hard but the results are really fulfilling.” “If you have knowledge, you have the force to make choices.” “We need to have a culture of innovation. Just like knowledge, passion and skills will help individuals reach their full potential, investing in innovation and value creation will help any country ensure better future for the generations to come.”

Joseph Beuys said: Every human being is an artist. Find out what he meant when he said these magic words. Children are more creative than adults. However, it seems we all have it within us. We just don't know it or we didn't find out yet. It might take a while until we actually realize that, but believe Martin KUPP, it's possible.Maybe it's hard for you to realize how or why, but the response might be easier than you imagine. It takes only a triple factor-based solution for multiple results. "Every human being is an artist." "Creativity is actually hard work."

Are you a curious person? Do you like to discover new things? Then, ask yourself the right questions, and you will maybe become a creative person. If you are curious enough, if you allow yourself some time to discover new things, to ask yourself the right questions, then you might me able to be creative. That is what Petronela Zainuddin wants to prove, and tells us all about the creative process. "Curiosity is just a spark, it is the beginning of creative process, it is the beginning of anything that we want to invent or make new." "If you ask an artist or someone who is inventing new stuff how did the;y do that, if they tell you about 'well well well, one morning I got up and I had this idea', that is not true." "Plan your discovery moment. Take out your agenda, and plan the time when you want to learn, when you want to discover a world." "Do every week and every day something new, so you pioneer new things."

"Serendipity c'est un des mot les plus difficiles dans la langue anglaise" "Ma traduction de serendipity c'est un hasard heureux qui amène des opportunités imprévues." "Notre cerveau, il est magique. La première étape avec serendipity est ce qu'on met toutes les informations, les connaissances, les problèmes auxquels on s'attaque. Ensuite, (...) la on laisse la machine travailler, notre subconscience qui va faire toutes les combinaisons qu'on ne peut pas faire nous même volontairement, consciemment. Troisième étape, la sérendipité frappe par hasard et c'est un stimulus externe. La quatrième est ce que notre cerveau il va fire un lien entre ces combinaisons et ces stimulus externes et il va générer une idée qui est basée sur tout ça." "J'entends souvent 'J'attends une bonne opportunité'. Et je pense ce que c'est un erreur. On n'attend pas une bonne opportunité. On la crée." "Si vous voulez quelque chose que vous n'avez jamais eu, faites quelque chose que vous n'avez jamais fait"
