Unuttered famous quotations

Hmm. I went to confirm the source of the famous quotation “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing,” and found at WikiQuote that although it’s commonly ascribed to Edmund Burke, he didn’t actually write it. In fact, as far as we (= Martin Porter 1 2) can tell, no one did.

Well, play it again, Sam!

  2. Old Bogus, for once I beat you to it! The link to that article was already in my post. Yes!

    :)

  3. Totally on a tangent, juxtaposing Burke and Bogey reminds me of what McLuhan apparently said when he began teaching, and couldn’t figure out his students: “Burke is feeble stuff to pit against Bogart!”
