“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to.”


Unfortunately I have no idea who wrote this, but I just read this in this music webpage I'm subscribed to, and it really made sense along the lines of my last post. The original link is here:


Go check it out. There's also a free 500 MB download of awesome music, so don't miss it.

EDIT: 

So I finally discovered who said those words. It's none other than movie director Jim Jarmusch. I really liked "Ghost Dog", it's interesting to see someone so talented having such a strong opinion on artistic "thievery".
