Topic: Famous Qoutes....can you find them?


Ok trying to find something for people to do to test you. Its a little game, see if you can find out who stated these qoutes:

"Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it."

"You cannot do wrong without suffering wrong."

"Nobody is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart; for his purity, by definition, is unassailable."

"I saw the crown of France on the ground, and I picked it up with a sword"

Have fun

#1 David Starr Jordan
He was a noted educator, scientist and peace activist. Born January 19, 1851, in Gainesville, NY..

#2 Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) was a major American poet, philosopher and center of the American Transcendental movement.

#3 James A. Baldwin
1924–87, American author, born in New York City.

#4 Possible wrong quote..
The correct one could be:
“I found the crown of France laying on the ground, and I picked it up with a sword”
or
"The crown of France was lying on the ground. I picked it with my sword,"
or
found the crown of France
lying in the gutter and I picked it up with my SWORD.".
Anyway, it was Napoleons own words on how he became the emperor..


Easy..

Winstone Churhill said the 2nd one: "Young man, you did a very fine thing to give up a most promising career to fight for your country. Mark you had you not done so, it would have been despicable"
