Too Long; Didn't Read
Quotes are lovely for conveying an idea, not only on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, and business presentations. But occasionally these misattributed quotes turned memes are quoted in media. The Quote Investigator (nom de plume Garson O’Toole) has been tracking and uncovering falsely attributed or apocryphal quotations for years. There are real quotations out there — take the time to find them. Don’t take 100 appearances of that same quotes as being authentication — look for appearances in reliable articles.
