Flattery is the sincerest imitation...

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Here's a phrase that historically comes from a book entitled, "Lacon," by Coined by Charles Caleb Colton in 1820.

Where could my child have learned such mannerisms? How could this be? My child, whom I am raising to be a perfect angel, where could she have run across this gesture?

Lucky for us, no one saw this sincere imitation.

I am not always so flattered. Or at least I don't sound so flattering heard from a small child's voice.

I don't sound very flattering when being mimicked by the boys either!
