Haiku # 14?

my good morning

consists of other’s words

does that make me quiet

If you follow me on Twitter, then you know I am a big fan of quotes.  I will usually retweet a quote (or 4) before I make a tweet of my own.  On Facebook I will sometimes not write any of my own words, but only post a quote by some dead person.  Why do I do that?  Some days I want to talk but I don’t know what I want to say.  Then there is this quote that explains it too:

Everything of importance has been said before by somebody who did not discover it.  -Alfred North Whitehead

I am filing this under Senryu. Do you agree with that? Why or why not?
