A Quote by H. Rentzsch on plagiarism, theft, idea, possession, and complaint
"Property in ideas is an insoluble contradiction. [He who complains of "theft" of his idea] complains that something has been stolen which he still possesses, and he wants back something which, if given to him a thousand times, would add nothing to his possession."
