Why do we say "Creativity is not a hobby, it's a way of life."

Today while browsing the net, I chance upon some quotes by this famous spiritual teacher ( of which I only heard of his name until now :P) Osho. His thinking about the meanings of creativity totally hits the spot of why I chosed that quote for my blog, Here's an excerpt from the full article which you can read here - http://www.osho.com/highlights-of-oshos-world/what-is-creativity

"Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach – how you look at things."
"So the first thing to be remembered: don't confine creativity to anything in particular. A man is creative – and if he is creative, whatsoever he does, even if he walks, you can see in his walking there is creativity. Even if he sits silently and does nothing, even non-doing will be a creative act. Buddha sitting under the Bodhi Tree doing nothing is the greatest creator the world has ever known. Once you understand it – that it is you, the person, who is creative or uncreative – then this problem disappears."
"Not everybody can be a painter – and there is no need also. If everybody is a painter the world will be very ugly; it will be difficult to live. And not everybody can be a dancer, and there is no need. But everybody can be creative."
"Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing it is not purely economical, then it is creative. If you have something growing out of it within you, if it gives you growth, it is spiritual, it is creative, it is divine."
