Plagiarism is the theft of someone else’s work and ideas.  You are permitted to cite or even quote someone else, however, you must properly cite them.  There are two accepted ways of doing this.  They are known as Modern Language Association (MLA) or American Psychological Association (APA).  You can visit www.citationmachine.net for help in correctly citing information.
