Famous quotes containing the word mistaken:

    He had not the least pride of birth and rank, that common narrow notion of little minds, that wretched mistaken succedaneum of merit.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    It’s very good for an idea to be commonplace. The important thing is that a new idea should develop out of what is already there so that it soon becomes an old acquaintance. Old acquaintances aren’t by any means always welcome, but at least one can’t be mistaken as to who or what they are.
