Quotable deliciousness

I discovered this on (and subsequently stole this from) Rach Writes, Rachael Harries' blog. Too good not to share:

"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

I love the idea of being original "without ever having noticed it" :)
