Maybe this will help.The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions a statistic. This one is often mis-attributed to Joseph Stalin. Don't remember who originally said it.
The actual quote from Shakespeare is "A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse"I agree with you there. Here's one which really annoys me My kingdom, My Kingdom, My Kingdom for horse. He actually said at Bosworth Treason, Treason,Treason after the Standleys Chose to side with Tudor.
They know for sure because the the first appearance of the phrase was attributed to a "great princess" when Marie Antoinette was nine years old and still living in Austria. And by all accurate accounts she was not the sort of woman who would have said it.I'm not sure if this exactly conforms with the OP, but 'Let them eat cake' bothers me a little. Some historians insist Marie Antoinette never said that. How would they know for sure? By most accounts she was the sort of person who would have said it.
Another fake quote from Yamamoto:"We have wakened a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve."
That was Toshiro Mifune, not Isoruku Yamamoto.
