Humphrey Bogart never says "Play it again, Sam" in Casablanca,
Nicolo' Machiavelli never wrote "The end justifies the means",

There a million other great examples of the mis-quotes floating around out
there. And what's even funnier than the fact that we act as if they really
said them, is that often, it's the mis-quote that the character is BEST
remembered for. So the moral of the story is that if you're going to do
something great, you better have a memorable sound-bite to go with it, or
someone else may find one for you.....
