Raquel has yet another mundane, generic, purposeless article up. At the end, she says "A wise man once said – “Don’t regret things. Why? Because you never lose in life. You either win or you learn.” I knew this sounded familiar and sure enough the wise man is indeed Nelson Mandela. I am someone who used to be very passionate about writing and am just now diving back into it, I wondered for a moment if she is in the clear by saying "a wise man once said"? But I don't think she is! I feel like that phrase is reserved for generic old sayings that cannot be traced back to any one person. Nelson Mandela obviously does not fall into that category. Why can't she simply give credit where credit is due? https://thoughtcatalog.com/raquel-duarte/2018/05/read-this-when-youre-feeling-behind-in-your-20s/ Raquel: You are quite behind in your 20s for assuming no one would notice this.
