In the Sept./Oct. 2012 issue of the Yale Alumni Magazine, I write in my regular quotation column about Winston Churchill and Benjamin Disraeli as "quotation magnets":


I credit Barry Popik, Garson O'Toole, and Ben Zimmer for information about Winston Churchill attributions, and praise Barry and Garson generally for their respective wonderful websites.  I also focus. in the section on Disraeli, on discussing Stephen Goranson's outstanding discoveries on "lies, damned lies, and statistics."
