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
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.
You can't test the waters of a new design by keeping your

Theodore W. Higgingsworth
Do not adorn the walls of progress with all that has been
accomplished by others but, instead, create a brand new wall
that stands as the exact opposite of what came before.
Rosy Lee Anderson

Innovation is taking two things that already exist and putting them together in a new way.
