"Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion."
It's a quote by CBS broadcaster Charles Kuralt who used to present a TV news segment called 'On the Road' (which is probably how the confusion arose). This particular statement by Kuralt was made in May 1996 to students of Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York: http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1298&dat=19960527&id=yf8yAAAAIBAJ&sjid=yQcGAAAAIBAJ&pg=3106,5606314
For maybe a decade give or take, Wikiquote was just like any quote site. Then they did a great purge and began to require strong citations to support all the misquotes out there - including ample pretty meme imagery.
This is why, for every quote I try to find citations on Wikiquote - or add it there with my proof.
I'm not saying anyone does or doesn't. I don't keep track. I'm just saying it doesn't take much to double check, and it's a good habit for those of us who love good quotes to get in.
