It is like people who do collages.
Use all of your own stuff.

something that I imagine could be troublesome.

but I knew what I was not going to do.
I knew I was not going to be controlled.

there was as large a price as it turned out to be.
- Bill Dixon

and if they knew it at one time, it has eluded them.
I know my worth.
You try not to dwell in the past.
