While It Lasts

Cover of "The Razor's Edge"Cover of The Razor's Edge"Nothing in the world is permanent, and we're foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we're still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it.

Hide Your Sources

Albert EinsteinImage via Wikipedia"The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources."

- Albert Einstein


Shouldn't we give credit where credit is due?

I understand that creative people can be influenced by everyting around them, and maybe we can hide those influences in our own creative work.

I guess that is what Einstein meant.
