    These are some things to make you think. If you have any input to any of them please give them

    You only live once, but if you live right, once is enough.

    Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.

    To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.

    If nothing ever sticks to Teflon, how do they make Teflon stick to the pan?

    You only live once, but if you live right, once is enough you supposedly go to heaven.

    Of all the things you wear, your expression Prada is the most important.

    To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research industrial espionage.

    If nothing ever sticks to Teflon, how do they make Teflon stick to the pan? <- now that is a great truth!

    It doesn't matter if you burn the candle at one end, or two.
    The important thing is that you burn the full candle.

    Why do we park in driveways, but drive on parkways?

    Why is there only one female Smurf (Smurfette) yet she isn't anyone's mother?

    Why do the words "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the SAME thing?

    If tomorrow is never promised and we're supposed to live every day like it's our last then how come you REALLY don't see anyone spending their life savings and living life to the fullest?

    What would a chair look like if our legs bent the other way?

    It's only plagiarism if you do not credit the person for their orginal idea. Every great scientist, researcher, philosopher, etc. has stood on the shoulders of others. Bohr came up with his version of the Atomic Theory--but it was nt entirely correct. But with his knowledge and lack or present day resources, it is amazing that he could even propose such a theory. Other scientists merely clarified and/or expanded on his orginal theory (EX. Electrons do not travel in perfect orbitals as Bohr theorized but rather orbitals: "clouds" or areas where an electron is most likely to be found--in simplistic terms.)

    In art, beginners are told to copy copy copy the Masters are much as possible. If you cannot solve a problem (i.e. foreshorttening the forearm orf a man.) we are taught to look to other artist's work. For certainly, da Vinci had solved that problem before--foreshotening limbs. So in order to learn and make great work, present day artists stand on the shoulders of the Masters--which is why art history is so important. Why waste your time trying to slove a problem when someone else has previously solved it for you? Visiting art galleries, and certainly the Louve, you will see artists copying the works of the masters.

    So long as you cite your sources, copying/using the work/data of others is essential to the learning process and to the process of building on to already claimed theories (i.e. the Atomic Theory)

    Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

    Food does not stick to Teflon.

    So, what should you do when every one says not to give in to peer pressure?

    Actually, I think I remember my HS chem teacher telling us about this - they score up the surface to be coated with teflon and then cover it in tiny 'beads' of teflon (kind of like photocopier toner) - after the surface has been coated, they subject it to high heat and then cool it - the heating allows the teflon 'beads' to grab ahold of the scored surface before it cools.
