Irony, the Magpie Mind, and Great Artists

"Good artists are influenced; great artists steal." (attr. Samuel Clemens)

"Immature poets imitate. Mature poets steal." (T. S. Eliot)

"Immature artists imitate. Mature artists steal." (Lionel Trilling)

"Immature artists copy. Mature artists steal." (Picasso)

In any case, it's obviously true in light of the evidence, wouldn't you say?
