“The originality which we ask from the artist is originality of treatment, not of subject. It is only the unimaginative who ever invent. The true artist is known by the use he makes of what he annexes, and he annexes everything.”

quoted in Oscar Wilde: The Critic as Humanist, by Bruce Bashford (Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1999), 116.
