Citations show the research path someone took to develop an idea, and they provide leads for other researchers to discover information in related resources.
"When to cite?"
You need to cite when you directly quote someone else, and it's also important to cite when you refer to another person's ideas or when you outline someone else's argument or line of reasoning.
