A man of great common sense and good taste is a man without originality or moral courage.
George Bernard Shaw quotes
About the most originality that any writer can hope to achieve honestly is to steal with good judgment.
Josh Billings quotes
Originality is nothing but judicious imitation. The most original writers borrowed from one another. The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbours, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all
It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
Herman Melville quotes
Originality is not seen in single words or even sentences. Originality is the sum total of a man's thinking or his writing.
Isaac Bashevis Singer quotes
