From February’s Writing Prompts, February 6, 2016
Never say…the same thing as everyone else. I spend a lot of time reading quotes from people as writing inspiration. I get inspiration in a lot of different forms, but quotes have been an excellent source for me, along with my own life experiences. A lot of those quotes I can relate to. Quotes resonate meaning and stir up reflection. No one else has said these things before, or at least in the same way that they’ve said it. How else does one really get their meaning heard, if they are saying the same thing as everyone else?
Let your originality shine through, and be yourself. Always say…you’re not like anyone else!
“Original minds are not distinguished by being the first to see a new thing, but instead by seeing the old, familiar thing that is over-looked as something new.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
