The difference between quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else. - Albert Einstein
Paraphrasing is restating the authors ideas in your own words. For example:
You must know the rules of a game, then you have to do better than everyone else.
Summarizing is restating the authors words in a very short, brief passage. For example:
In an article, you only want to list the key points of the article and not everything it says.
