    Famous Quotes you could change

    How would you edit some famous quotes:

    for starters...

    "I did not refuse to have sex with that woman"

    - Bill Clinton
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    JFK - "I'm a donut" is how it comes across...

    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
    "Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
    So many sayings, so little sig space.

    I’m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said whatever it was.

    JFK - "I'm a donut" is how it comes across...
    Common misconception, I have it on good authority from both native speakers and German Master's Degree holders that the "donut" thing is not the case...and that the rousing applause after he said it indicated the people knew what he was talking about.

    My quote:

    "In actual fact the pacifistic-humane idea is perfectly all right perhaps when the highest type of man has previously conquered and subjected the world to an extent that makes him the sole ruler of this earth… Therefore, first struggle and then perhaps pacifism."
    - Adolf Hitler

    Removing the portion in italics...

    Well, there's a difference between the use of the general infinitive "the" in Engrish vs. the European languages. We say, "do you want water?" to mean water in-general. In European languages, you would say, "do you want the water?" to mean in-general.

    Similary, a difference exists with the specific infinitive "a" as well. In Engrish, we say specifically, "do you want a Coke?", whereas the Europeans would say, "do you want Coke?" as they point to it in referring to a specific can of soda.

    Additional confusion in this case is also that "Beliner" is also the proper-name of a donut brand.

    BTW - I also have it from first-hand eye-witnesses at the event that there were plenty of people that were confused as well... then applauded seconds later. The context of the communications comes through even though the actual content may be scrambled, similar to how furriners can be understood here even though they may leave out the occasional "the" or "a".

    I almost posted the same thing...but you did it much better.

    Do not weep; do not wax indignant. Understand.

    Baruch Spinoza (1632 - 1677)


    my version:

    Do not weep; do not wax that a**. Understand.
