Lying, stealing, and cheating are commonplace.
Joseph B. Wirthlin

I know imitation is the highest form of flattery, but stealing one's identity is totally different.
I was not addicted to stealing in my youth, nor have ever been; yet such was the confidence of the Negroes in the neighborhood, even at this early period of my life, in my superior judgment, that they would often carry me with them when they were going on any roguery, to plan for them.
Borrowing is not much better than begging; just as lending with interest is not much better than stealing.
