Are you writing a paper?
If you have done research on your topic first, you may want to use other people's ideas or words.
You may do so, as long as you indicate exactly what you have quoted or paraphrased, and provide citations within the text of your paper, as well as in a bibliography, unless it is "common knowledge."
