“Creation as applied to human authorship seems to me to be an entirely misleading term. We rearrange elements He has provided. There is not a vestige of real creativity de novo in us. Try to imagine a new primary color, a third sex, a fourth dimension, or even a monster that does not consist of existing animals stuck together. Nothing happens. And that is surely why our works never mean what we intended: because we are recombining elements made by Him and already contain His meanings.” ~ C.S. Lewis

“Critique by creating” ~ Michelangelo
