Famous Quotes?

~ History is full of well known people. Those people have also left a legacy of famous quotes. "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes," "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead," are just two of them. Overlooked by many, some historic figures are also responsible for lesser known quotes. Following is a list of few I found in an old e-mail sent to me a few years ago. (That e-mail did not mention a source, but that is not unusual on forwarded material.)

  2. Lizzy! Get out there and chop that fire wood! - Mr. Borden
  3. What the hell was that? - the Mayor of Hiroshima
