Plagiarism, Quotes, and It's a Beautiful Day

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
Honesdale, PA

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Today I share quotes on Plagiarism. Last week I had dinner with a friend and the subject of copy-catting someone else's work came up. As a writer who is inspired by other writer's works and will remain focused to give credit where credit is due, I share these quotes with you. I lovingly scooped them from "W.O.W., Writers on Writing" by Jon Winokur. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do.

"Whatever has been well said by anyone is mine."--Seneca

"The difference between a bad artist and a good one is: The bad artist seems to copy a great deal, the good one really does."--William Blake

"Good swiping is an art in itself."--Jules Feiffer

"The Eighth Commandment was not made for bards."--Samuel Taylor coleridge

"No man ever yet became great by imitation."--Samuel Johnson

"Immature artists imitate. Mature artists steal."--Lionel Trilling

"The immature poet imitates; the  mature poet plagiarizes."--T. S. Eliot

See you in print,
