All good things which exist are the fruits of originality.
Nearly all our originality comes from the stamp that time impresses upon our sensibility.
Originality is a thing we constantly clamour for, and constantly quarrel with.
Originality is independence, not rebellion; it is sincerity, not antagonism.
The greater intellect one has, the more originality one finds in men. Ordinary persons find no difference between men.
Some writers confuse authenticity, which they ought always to aim at, with originality, which they should never bother about.
The merit of originality is not novelty; it is sincerity.
If contemporary artists sincerely seek to be original, unique, and new, they should begin by disregarding the notions of originality, individuality, and innovation: they are the cliches of our time.
Originality exists in every individual because each of us differs from the others. We are all primary numbers divisible only by ourselves.
Originality is the one thing which unoriginal minds cannot feel the use of.
