Whenever a direct quote or an argument is taken from a source, it should be acknowledged. This is the way to let the readers know what is your own idea and what has been built upon another person's idea.
Also, not citing your sources would categorize your work under plagiarism. To avoid this, you must always cite your sources and references.
