“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

Art happens. No hovel is safe from it, no prince can depend on it, the vastest intelligence cannot bring it about.
-James A.M. Whistler
Listen to everyone. Ideas come from everywhere.
