Monsters and Thieves – Signal v. Noise
That quote “Good artists copy; great artists steal,” is often attributed to Picasso. But that’s not what he actually said. According to The Quote Investigator, that’s Steve Jobs’ version as he was trying to quote Picasso.
Picasso has also been quoted as saying:
Bad artists copy; great artists steal.
But a 1974 book, mentioned William Faulkner said:
Immature artists copy, great artists steal.
But it was T.S. Elliot who in 1920 wrote:
Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.
And it was Alfred Tennyson in 1892 who wrote:
That great poets imitate and improve, whereas small ones steal and spoil.
