The Truth

“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

Think about the most original artist you know.  Is what they are doing truly original?  Or rather, is it a complete commitment to the truth?

If there is, actually, nothing new under the sun, then all we’ve got left is to point to the truth and tell it.

Just telling the truth and being true to yourself will make you fresh and original by default.
