Understanding the Internet better through History

"It is perfectly normal, in this day and age, for a person to use social media to spread doctrine with no factual basis, without checking for any form of historical record, and with the attachment of the name of a notable figure to give the statement credence; this form of ignorance is both an inalienable right of humanity and the foundation on which our great country formed."
 - Thomas Jefferson

"The trouble with quotes on the Internet is that you never know if they are genuine."
- Abraham Lincoln

"The greatest thing about Facebook, is that you can quote something and totally make up the source." - George Washington

"When in doubt, attribute quotes to Mark Twain."
- Samuel Clemens

"The fabrication of Oscar Wilde quotes is among the noblest of endeavors."
- Oscar Wilde

I have to admit I stole this idea from someone's Facebook post. But I liked it too much to walk away from.
