John Cleese on Creativity


I was sent this video yesterday and it is 36 minutes long in English but with Danish subtitles.  (?)And it is hilarious, insightful and really gave me some much needed oxygen.

John Cleese on Creativity:

“Play is distinct from ordinary life both as to locality and duration. This is its main characteristic: its secludedness, its limitedness. Play begins and at a certain moment it is over, otherwise it is not play.”

  1. Thanks so much for this. John Cleese is one on my favs and his talk was a helpful jump start.

    How can you not love a man who gave us, “I know nothing. I am from Barcelona.”
