Sometimes you read something and it sticks with you in such a way that you immediately want to tell others about what you read. When you do, usually you put the saying into your own words, adding your own inflection and emphasis where you imagine it in your own mind.

In the end, the words are still someone else’s but you put enough of you into it that it sort of becomes yours too.

On the other hand, there are times when you read something that is so perfectly put, there is no way to add anything to it, there is no need to tweak it with your personality and there is no need to put your own interpretation on it. Sometimes you read something and it’s just magical as-is. In that case, all you can do is quote it, straight up. Having said that…

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

There you have it. Magical.
