Theft in Poetry – T.S. Eliot QUOTES FOR WRITERS

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.
The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different from that from which it was torn. 
T.S. Eliot
