"A man can believe, and make his own, in the most genuine way, what he has received from another;--and with boundless gratitude to the other. The merit of originality is not novelty; it is sincerity. The believing man is the original man; whatsoever he believes, he believes it for himself, not for another."
Thomas Carlyle, "The Hero as Priest"
