“There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”

-Mark Twain

  1. Ecclesiastes 1:9
    That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. – Apparently Mr. Clemens borrowed from King Solomon and all the new was used up even way back then.
