Thoughts Stolen by Mirz123 Thoughts Stolen by Mirz123
"There are no original ideas."

This is a stamp of one of my favorite quotes. It's by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Basically, it means that many (more likely all) of the ideas we have, which we think are so wonderful or great, were done before. And not simply done before, but done centuries ago. Is that a bad thing? No. It just means when you have an idea for that great novel, or that wonderful painting, and you find out it's been done before, don't get discouraged. Just be mindful to give it a spin and make it your own. And don't let the haters get you down when they say "this is just like XYZ" because chances are, so is all of their stuff. :D

Anyhow, I love the simplicity of this piece and my little "ancient" guys.

Stamplate by me. I really need to get another pack together soon--I have so many I haven't released. :nuu:

Font is my new "pixelesque" which I'll be releasing in the next week or so.

:happybounce: You do NOT need a subscription to use this stamp. Due to dA changes, you can now use it in your journal or ID box, even if you are not a pay-member. Simply cut-and-paste the thumbcode into your journal and you'll post the stamp!!

:bulletblue: You can find more of my stamps in this gallery folder ---> [link]

*** Terms of Usage ***
As with most of my pixel work, you may use this on and off deviantART, without my permission. The only thing I ask is that you keep the file name in tact and don't remove any credit information. Also, if you use, let me know as it encourages me to make more free-use art.

This image is now available for limited commercial use. You may not re-distribute or sell this image. However, it may be used as site decoration, such as on forums, in chats, or in a similar manner. Please see [link] (this page) for full details.

So true. I often see some people who claims that "you can't copy my ideas", without realising that other people often have ideas popped into their minds that seems to be same but with different twist and creativity. =)
