39 Innovation Quotes

Be inspired and motivated by these innovation quotes. Innovation has been defined by countless business types to mean something very similar to what Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, states as, "meaning a new idea, creative thoughts, new imaginations in form of device or method. Innovation is often also viewed as the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs."

The aforementioned definitions of innovation while applied to the business world can also be applied to the individual person. This is the person who decides that to introduce change into their personal equation depends on their reinvention, or innovation relative to their own attributes; that is how they respond to issues; how they handle stress; or how they integrate a modality of expectations into their real personality without causing harm, grief or upset to their own psychic nature.

And, while all of these various definitions may have merit, it is also wise to consider what you mean by innovation in understanding that it may be more an individually subjective rather than an objective viewpoint. There’s no exact science to explain where your next idea may come from, however, it may simply be the reading of one quote, or unique saying, or some other type of message that may just be your trigger. So, read on and see what thoughts unfold today.
