As per the title, I am looking for a word (adjective I believe) that describes: "something which has been inspired by many sources"; "is a collection of things from a variety of sources". It is on the tip of my tongue, yet I can't remember it and it is going to drive me insane. Thank you in advance.

  • What is the causal link between "something drawn" and "many sources" in your title? – Lawrence Jun 11 '17 at 11:48

I'd suggest Eclectic

Mirriam-Webster gives the following definition:

1: selecting what appears to be best in various doctrines, methods, or styles

2: composed of elements drawn from various sources

  • ¶Thank you! That is exactly the word! I knew I would know it when I saw it and there it is! Thank you very much for your assistance kind sir. – Samael Jun 11 '17 at 18:39
