What inspires? What sparks creation?

There are as many answers to this as there are ideas. Leading clients through the ideation process is one of the several services we provide at Dawn. Often we use quotes to spark a discussion.

You’ll find some of our favorites here, including ones that have the power to alter a mindset.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.

– The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
