„Lateral thinking is closely related to insight, creativity and humour.“

—  Edward de Bono, Lateral Thinking : Creativity Step by Step (1970), Context: Lateral thinking is closely related to insight, creativity and humour. All four processes have the same basis. But whereas insight, creativity and humour can only be prayed for, lateral thinking is a more deliberate process. It is as definite a way of using the mind as logical thinking — but a very different way. p. 6; First paragraph of the introduction.

„The concept of lateral thinking is insight restructuring and this is brought about through the rearrangement of information.“

—  Edward de Bono Maltese physician 1933
Lateral Thinking : Creativity Step by Step (1970), Context: The concept of lateral thinking is insight restructuring and this is brought about through the rearrangement of information. Rearrangement is the basis of lateral thinking and rearrangement means escape from the rigid patterns established by experience. The rearrangement process is incorporated in the concept of the (re) laxative. The laxative is a rearranging device. It is the means whereby one can escape from established patterns and create new ones. The laxative allows the arrangement of information in new ways from which new patterns can arise. The concept of the laxative is crystallized into a definite language tool. This language tool is PO. Once one learns the function and use of PO one has learned how to use lateral thinking. The whole concept of lateral thinking is concentrated in the use of this language tool. Lateral thinking could be said to be the management of PO just as logical thinking is the management of NO. p. 159.

„Creative thinking — in terms of idea creativity — is not a mystical talent. It is a skill that can be practised and nurtured.“

—  Edward de Bono Maltese physician 1933
Iraq? They just need to think it through (2007), Context: Creative thinking — in terms of idea creativity — is not a mystical talent. It is a skill that can be practised and nurtured. You can never tell how a policy has been reached just by looking at the end result. Some people who have achieved a huge amount do not come across as impressive when you speak to them.

„Rightness is what matters in vertical thinking. Richness is what matters in lateral thinking.“

—  Edward de Bono Maltese physician 1933
Lateral Thinking : Creativity Step by Step (1970), Context: Rightness is what matters in vertical thinking. Richness is what matters in lateral thinking. Vertical thinking selects a pathway by excluding other pathways. Lateral thinking does not select but seeks to open up other pathways. With vertical thinking one selects the most promising approach to a problem, the best way of looking at a situation. With lateral thinking one generates as many alternative approaches as one can. p. 29.
