    The bees pillage the flowers here and there but they make honey
    of them which is all their own; it is no longer thyme or
    marjolaine: so the pieces borrowed from others he will transform
    and mix up into a work all his own.
    [Fr., Les abeilles pillotent deca dela les fleurs; mais elles en
    font aprez le miel, qui est tout leur; ce n'est plus thym, ny
    marjolaine: ainsi les pieces empruntees d'aultruy, il les
    transformera et confondra pour en faire un ouvrage tout sien.]

By plucking bon-mots from their places.

The Plagiarism of orators is the art, or an ingenious and easy
mode, which some adroitly employ to change, or disguise, all
sorts of speeches or their own composition, or that of other
authors, for their pleasure, or their utility; in such a manner
that it becomes impossible even for the author himself to
recognize his own work, his own genius, and his own style, so
skillfully shall the whole be disguised.

Who, to patch up his fame--or fill his purse--
Still pilfers wretched plans, and makes them worse;

Who, to patch up his fame--or fill his purse--
Still pilfers wretched plans, and makes them worse;
Like gypsies, lest the stolen brat be known,
Defacing first, then claiming for his own.
