A thought about 'originality' -- Wisdom Sunday

Yes. Another one from Lewis. And, what is more, from the same source as the previous installment.

No man who values originality will ever be original. But try to tell the truth as you see it, try to do any bit of work as well as it can be done for the work’s sake, and what men call originality will come unsought. – “Membership”

I have found it to be very practical advice. Now-days, when I see what gets called "original" it is usually wearing its pants down around it knees and walking through the mall.
