Do misquotes drive you mad?
My personal bug is "Knowledge is power" when in actual fact the real quote is "the use of knowledge is power."
Is there any that get you heated and how do you explain them to the people who misquote them>
Actually, my response will likely bug you, too: I've decided to adopt the "if you can't beat them, join them" motto and have begun placing my own twist on quotations. One example, I usually tell my students, "Read on, MacDuff!" Personally, I get much more peeved by misspellings, malapropisms, and misuse of grammar (I really can't stand "between you and I" for example).
