Every artist is a cannibalEvery poet is a thiefAll kill their inspirationThen sing about their grief.-Byron Smith
Oi, you word robber, isn't that U2's The Fly?
Nice, Byron! Very nice!David, no it ain't! Got it from an old file called 'great quotes' left on my old hard drive! Found it today while importing software.
It so is U2. I downloaded it recently. See this url:http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/The-Fly-lyrics-U2/E6053B24C08254AB482568960031239A
David, I beg to differ.Once I've taken it, it's mine.Possession is nine tenths of the law.
OK Byron, What do you think of this then?We're one but we're not the same,We get to carry each other,Carry each other.One love....Good eh?
To quote the eminent authority, Tom Lehrer:"I am never forget the day I first meet the great Lobachevsky.In one word he told me secret of success in mathematics: Plagiarize!Plagiarize,Let no one else's work evade your eyes,Remember why the good Lord made your eyes,So don't shade your eyes,But plagiarize, plagiarize, plagiarize...Only be sure always to call it please, "research".
