„I hate quotation. Tell me what you know.“

—  Ralph Waldo Emerson American philosopher, essayist, and poet 1803 - 1882

May 1849: This is a remark Emerson wrote referring to the unreliability of second hand testimony and worse upon the subject of immortality. It is often taken out of proper context, and has even begun appearing on the internet as "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know" or sometimes just "I hate quotations".
