Website of the Week: Quote Investigator


quote investigator

This week’s Website of the Week is Quote Investigator. Ever wondered whether that famous quote you love to use is factually accurate? Did Albert Einstein really say everything attributed to him? How would we know and could we ever find out for sure? Dr Garson O’Toole may be able to help. His excellent investigative blog Quote Investigator  attempts to get to the bottom of just who said what, when and where.

Dr O’Toole scours the web and print sources to separate the fact from fiction when it comes to famous quotes. So before you emblazon that essay or blog post with some snappy quote by your favourite author, just check that they did in fact say what you think they said.
