Famous Misquotes

Recommended Posts

To compliment the Favourite Quotes thread . It got me thinking of all the famous misquotes that have gone down through time as accepted fact or seeped into the consciousness .

For instance Neil Armstrong commented he didn’t say “ one small step for man “ , it made no sense , but “ one small step for a man “ but static interfered .

Humphrey Bogart never said Play it again Sam

And James Cagney never said "you dirty rat"

However, I believe Robert Newton definitely said "aarrgh, Jim Laaard!" 😀

 "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."

Einstein never said that.The Ultimate Quotable Einstein traces the quote to Rita Mae Brown's 1983 book Sudden Death, but it's almost certainly older than that.

It's taken Australia since October last year to notice a misquote on their $50 banknote. This is because the average Aussie doesn't see a $50 note long enough to examine it, before heading to the pub, or because not many people can spell responsibility. Think it's the first.
