A Word of Warning...Plagiarism
A good deal of what we all think is an original thought...usually is not...somewhere we have either heard it, read it, or stole it. Most times we dig it out of our subconscious mind and type it on some cyber-wall and think that it grew like magic in our own little heads...innocently we scratch our name beneath it and hope that our readers think that we are wise and creative little homo sapiens and long for the applause.
As a wise Zen Master once said...there is very little original thought...even some of the greatest philosophers in history either stole directly or indirectly...changing a few words in an aphorism doesn't make it yours...even if you have genuinely forgotten where or when you got it from in the first place. Now, in the world of Google, it doesn't take that much of an effort to do a search...see that more than likely someone has written it or said it before...more than likely actually...if that is the case, as it usually is, one is better off quoting the original source rather than trying to disguise it with few word changes. I'm not pointing fingers at anyone in particular, because we are all guilty of it...matter of fact, we were taught to do this in our education systems.
So before posting, do a fact check. Below is a great site just for that. https://plagiarismdetector.net/
