Originality in art: Truthtelling

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. Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life, and you will save it.

— C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

This is Weekly Geeks day 5 of a quote-a-day. Here’s my quote from day 1, day 2, day 3 and day 4. Two days left!

Do you have any great and/or inspiring quotes about writing to share with me?
