    The idea is to carry on a discussion, using only quotations. After all, if something should be said then probably someone already said it! I'll start:

    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.

    all the words i have ever written,
    have done been wrote before...
    they're all mixed up and jumbled around,
    like kittens with string on the floor...
