This quote is based on an article, titled "Imitators and Plagiarists" by W. H. Davenport Adams in 1892:

"Of Tennyson’s assimilative method, when he adopts an image or a suggestion from a predecessor, and works it up into his own glittering fabric, I shall give a few instances, offering as the result and summing up of the preceding inquiries a modest canon: “That great poets imitate and improve, whereas small ones steal and spoil."
