Sunday Quotes: On Being Original

You know the drill, pretend its Sunday.

“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 two pence how often it has been told before), you will, nine times out of ten, become original without having noticed it. The principle runs through life top to bottom. Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it…”

-C.S. Lewis; Mere Christianity
