Ive seen a few threads discussing misquotations, including the quote about Roman times taken from a book of fiction. Apologies but i cant recall the author or the book mentioned but im sure others will know what im talking about .
So how many books do they read to find these quotes ? They must b e buying a lot of apostate books just to find a worthy quote. THis is quite difficult given one doesnt exactly know that a suitable quote exists within a book unless one buy and reads it.
Have i missed something or is there an easier way to quote mine ?
