Can you post some links to your music for me to rip/sample?
I'm a little short for ideas of my own lately.

KidLib said it best when he was talking bout youtube sampling. Basically, he says it's terrible. I'm sorry but, I have to agree - 99% of the time, it's going to sound wonky (and not a cool kinda wonky ) .. Do what you feel is right, but a lot of people will notice if your sound quality is just REALLY off (because you sampled youtube)..
Also, if you're scouring round the internets for some free samples, there's some at (sorry to self promote, but it's relevant, eh? ) Bassadelic dot com.. Though there's some that are for pay, there are definitely a good share that are free. Check it out if you still have a hard time.
Thought I'd put in mine, and I hope it helps. Happy mixin!!

I personally have stopped sampling from random stuff, but I quite miss the fun of digging through charity shops looking for forgotten sounds, SFX, talking, string sections and exotica that I could cut up and give a new lease of life by working into something new. But nowadays all the fun seems to have gone, because the bean counters have taken over.
One thing about sampling that did piss me off. Remember in the 90's when D+B was going through it's "mutant jazz" phase, and producers were sampling jazz riffs, looping them and calling their music "mutant jazz". That was lame. And it goes without saying any kind of "rip-off" sampling is unethical, especially when it's a well-known artist stealing riffs from a lesser-known genius (and it usually is that way around) to make a quick buck. But then, you don't need a sampler to steal a melody or hook, it just makes it easier.
