40 Famous Quotes the Internet Got Wrong
Over the centuries, many words, phrases, and proverbs have become famous and used widely all over the world. However, as you’d expect with any language, their meaning or original statement was lost with time. Obviously, short phrases are much easier to share (especially before the internet or even physical writing).
We’ve assigned quotes into one of three categories:
- Unknown Source - Quotes that are attributed to someone, however don’t have a confirmed accurate source.
- Wrongly Attributed - Quotes attributed to someone incorrectly, but have a confirmed accurate source.
- Incorrect Quote - These quotes are attributed to the right person, but either have missing or changed wording.
Be prepared to question your entire education and life. But don’t worry! You’re definitely not the only one to be duped by pretty Instagram images featuring a sunset or a quick-witted Twitter post.
