Why did they all use the term Steal, Stealing means someone lost and the thief won. It means the good lost and the bad won
Inspiration is a better word. Because Inspiration means that my source of inspiration is continuing to do its part and my creation does its part in its own unique way. Nobody lost, and everyone won.
All the big dogs who meant it well, but they used the wrong word.

We want you to take from us. We want you, at first, to steal from us, because you can’t steal. You will take what we give you and you will put it in your own voice and that’s how you will find your voice. And that’s how you begin. And then one day someone will steal from you. – Francis Ford Coppola
