2 thoughts on “Borrowed Thoughts”

  1. Says a woman who borrowed the entire English language to express that thought in. I very much doubt she invented the language herself.

    I don’t know about you, but when I borrow money, I don’t do it to show my poverty, but to put that money to good use and make myself less poor. For instance, I quite cheerfully pay a mortgage on a nice little house so I will not have to spend even more money to rent a squalid little flat (as I was once compelled to do). And when I ‘borrow’ thoughts, I am engaging in the most characteristically human of all human activities: I am learning from other people’s experience. Lady Marguerite can go suck a borrowed egg.
