Are People Stealing My Quotes?

A short time ago, I was on Twitter. Someone said they hated life. I responded to them with: "When people say they hate life, to what are they comparing it to? The alternative isn't anymore appealing."

Of course, what I meant was, if you hate life, then the alternative would be death. Right? And alas, that isn't anymore appealing, now is it?

Is it? O_O

So a few days ago, someone on Twitter by the name of AJ Peterlin posted the very same exact quote that I posted on Twitter also. Not only that, AJ failed to acknowledge that I said it. Did AJ get away with stealing my quote? Nope. Thanks to Nate Starcher, who quickly caught it and tweeted me about it. Check it out.







Thanks Nate. 

I mean, seriously, I don't mind anyone using my quotes, but could you at least give me my props for it when you do? Is that too much to ask? 

Maybe AJ was just trying to be cool?





I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is The Looking Glass.

    1. I keep it private for the most part. It's my non author space. A place where I can just be me.

    1. I'm overwhelmed.

      I have some fans who send me links to these sites when they find them. Sometimes, a member of my family will tell me about them.

      I'm just glad that there are people out there getting inspired by my words like I often get inspired by other people's words. Art is a beautiful thing.

    3. No one is totally innocent. Sometimes I'm sweet though. I do think a lot and I do have deep thoughts.

    1. I'm the great Carroll Bryant. Who the fuck is AP? (Peterlin) and who the fuck are you?

      Rhetorical. I already know the answers. Both of you are no one.
