When you plant the seed of an idea it begins a life of it's own. You may be able to help guide it through it's life, especially in the beginning. The idea may also come in contact with other minds and influences which will also help shape the seedling of an idea. You can love it or hate it, you can even claim it as your own. In the end though, ideas will grow and live their own life. Influencing you just as much as you influenced it. What an amazing creation an idea can be.
