These Words Help Me Out Of My Brain-Mires

“The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.”
-Einstein

“Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.”
C.S. Lewis

These quotes keep me writing when I worry that I’m just spouting the same ideas we’ve all heard a hundred times before. (However, after a conversation with a friend’s housemate last night, I’m wondering if a few of my ideas aren’t ‘radical’ to some people. Which is the beauty of the universe. People have different ideas, and then we learn. Schweet.)
