Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and assignment below:
We value uniqueness and originality, but it seems that everywhere we turn, we are surrounded by ideas and things that are copies or even copies of copies. Writers, artists, and musicians seek new ideas for paintings, books, songs, and movies, but many sadly realize, "It's been done." The same is true for scientists, scholars, and businesspeople. Everyone wants to create something new, but at best we can hope only to repeat or imitate what has already been done.
Can people ever be truly original?
Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations.
正：As long as people create the things they have never done themselves, they can be counted as being original.
反：Nothing in the world has never been done by anyone before.
补：We should have a positive attitude towards creation.
