Robbing Your Mother

“Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different.” -- T.S. Elliot

"Talent borrows, genius steals." -- Oscar Wilde

“If a writer has to rob his mother, he will not hesitate. 'The Ode on A Grecian Urn' is worth any number of old ladies.” -- William Faulkner
