Cheating (GBE 45)

Last week, the subject was Independence. I participated for the first time and did my blog in a format that was comfortable to me. It was well received, and just like people who do poetry blogs or music blogs, I think quote blogs will become my thing. Cheating is defined as many things. As a transitive verb: 1: to deprive of something valuable by the use of deceit or fraud, 2: to influence or lead by deceit, trick, or artifice, 3: to elude or thwart by or as if by outwitting. As an intransitive verb: 1 a: to practice fraud or trickery b: to violate rules dishonestly (cheat at cards) (cheating on a test), 2: to be sexually unfaithful —usually used with on (was cheating on his wife). So I have gathered quotes from songs and from people, along with pictures. I hope you enjoy.
