Do you think it helps?

To me, influence is hypnosis.

By expanding my perspective and inspiring me to set high standards for myself.

Expansion can only come at the expense of others, expression can only come from yourself.

I'm not sure what you mean. You expand your own perspectives by stealing them from others, is that what you're implying? Or by expanding your own perspective, you are imposing it on others? Is the "others" that you're talking about the people whose work you're reading, or is the "others" you're talking about the people who are reading your work? Do you mean others have to expend themselves so you can expand your perspective? I have no idea what you mean.

"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction." Pablo Picasso

You must destroy in order to create. Expansion can only come at the expense of others...

I like the quote, but I'm still not sure what you mean. It sounds like expansion happens at your own expense, because you have to tear down what you know in order to learn from others. How do you mean it happens at the expense of others?

To destroy others is nothing. To destroy yourself now that's a show.

The quotes will keep coming as they only reinforce what I already think.
