Thought for the day ...

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, born on this date in 1898

  1. I am by no means a Lewis fan, in fact I think there are numerous problems with his theology and philosophy.

    But in this quote, with regards to originality, I very much agree. Thanks for the reminder of a profound truth.
