“In the struggle for survival, the cutest win out at the expense of the less cute because they appeal more to celebrities and, through them, to a live television audience.”
Garson O'Toole, Hemingway Didn't Say That: The Truth Behind Familiar Quotations

“You may be shocked by how fragile information is, and I fear it is only getting worse. Each transmission of a quote can sometimes seem to produce cracks in the truth.”
Garson O'Toole, Hemingway Didn't Say That: The Truth Behind Familiar Quotations

“Mark Twain, Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill, Dorothy Parker, and Yogi Berra are quotation superstars. Personas of this type are so vibrant and attractive that they become hosts for quotations they never uttered. A remark formulated by a lesser-known figure is attached to a famous host. The relationship is symbiotic and often enhances the popularity of both the host and the quotation.”
Garson O'Toole, Hemingway Didn't Say That: The Truth Behind Familiar Quotations
