“There are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt.” ~ Audre Lorde
“It doesn’t matter how new an idea is: what matters is how new it becomes.” ~ Elias Canetti
Those are my favorite quotes about ideas.
I’ve used them frequently with creative clients, especially those who struggled to have an “original” idea. Anything that was even remotely related to something that already existed, they deemed cheating.
