Algebra I: Modules. Add remark regarding analogy between cyclic modules and cyclic groups

Let $M$ be an $R$-module. Then $M$ is said to be a \textbf{cyclic module} if
$M = Rx = \{ ax \mid a \in R\}$ where $x \in M$.
$M = Rx = \{ ax \mid a \in R\}$ where $x \in M$. This is in direct analogy to
a cyclic group, namely they are both generated by one element.
Clearly, $R$ itself is a cyclic $R$-module as we have $R = R1$. If $M = Rx$ then
