HM : Quotation

In our younger days, we rely on Bartlett’s “Book of familiar quotations”.


If people do not check the source, they may misquote or attribute a quote to the wrong person.

For example, many believe that Sherlock Holmes said, “Elementary, my dear Watson”. It is not true.

Most quoted

In the class book, the following are quoted the most

  • Bible
  • Shakespeare
  • Anon. (for anonymous)

Some quotations

I do not remember the authors of the following quotes. Provide feedback if you know them.

  • You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.
  • Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me.
  • Worry is like sand in an oyster. A little produces a pearl. Too much kills the animal.
