Previously on JoyfulAntidotes, I used to do a quotes series each week on a different topic. I concluded that series at the beginning of this year as I wanted to put more of my own words here rather than that of others. At the same time, my quotes posts were quite popular and I really enjoyed doing them. So as I was thinking of something to write about today, I thought I would do a one-off quote post. A one-off quote post on originality. Somewhat of a contradiction I know, but I hope you enjoy it.
I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original – Aaliyah
This is what I learned: that everybody is talented, original and has something important to say – Brenda Ueland
There are no original ideas. There are only original people – Barbara Grizzuti Harrison
If you want to be original just try being yourself, because God has never made two people exactly alike – Bernard Meltzer
If you do not express your own original ideas, if you do not listen to your own being, you will have betrayed yourself – Rollo May
