plagurism or citing

I think it can be tricky to know the difference between
plagiarism and research/attributing sources.

Does one copy just a sentence from a source to make
a point, two sentences, or an entire paragraph?

If an entire paragraph, then why not the whole paper?

It's a slippery slope, between the two.

I had trouble with this in high school myself.


There's an art to quoting only a sentence or perhaps
two sentences from a source, and incorporating it into
one's paper without plagiarism.

It's hard to know the limits - what's too few source material?
What's too much source material?  What is a work of creative
fiction invented by the student, and what is plagiarism?
