Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

Meaning

Literal meaning.

Origin

This proverbial expression dates from the early 19th century, although versions of it that paraphrased the same thought existed well before then.

The first of these alternate versions is found in a biography of Marcus Aurelius by Jeremy Collier and André Dacier, titled Emperor Marcus Antoninus his conversation with himself, 1708:

You should consider that Imitation is the most acceptable part of Worship, and that the Gods had much rather Mankind should Resemble, than Flatter them.

A nearer stab at the current version comes in a piece by the English writer Eustace Budgell in the newspaper The Spectator No. 605, October 1714:

Imitation is a kind of artless Flattery.

The full monty as far as this proverb is concerned was given by Charles Caleb Colton, in Lacon: or, Many things in few words, 1820:

Imitation is the sincerest of flattery.

Colton was expressing the same idea as Budgell, in that, to imitate is to flatter without necessarily being aware one is flattering. As such, that 'artless' appreciation has to be 'sincere'.

I dont think it real. if you look at the boom where it meets the canopy, its all one piece, there is no seam or overlap where the canopy would cover the tail boom like the Goblin or JR does. I think its photo shop."R.I.P Roman" Citizen 0094 in the Nation

I think it's a great looking Align!

And if they were going to copy "the best", it wouldn't be a gobbler.

But we all have our likes and dislikes.

I believe Align posted it . what Im saying is it maybe just to collect a number on how it is received so to speak. Look at the picture closely and note what Im talking about. If this was an actual model prototype , how would the lipos be installed with a canopy and boom that appear to be one single piece? It looks very cool though, and I agree, imitation is the sincere form of flattery!"R.I.P Roman" Citizen 0094 in the Nation

Looks like its just a rendering. This picture looks to have a seam between the canopy and boom section.

Gee why didn't Align come up with something of their own design instead of copying someone elses design. I have always been an Align fan but this one is going to fall flat on it's face because it looks too much like the Goblin. They may sell a few of them , but any one in the hobby knows what is going on here and will not buy it.trex 700fbl cal30,minititan,, trx600fbl,trex250,logo 500,Velocity N2
