11 quotes and phrases we often say or quote wrongly

1. EAT ALONE AND DIE ALONE

Eat alone and dine alone

2. MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL

THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL TIMOTHY 6:10 KING JAMES VERSION

3. MONEY MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND

LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND

4. I COULD CARES LESS

I COULDN’T CARE LESS”.
When you say “I couldn’t care less,”you’re saying you really, really don’t care. You care so little, that you could not care any less.:

5. “COULD OF, WOULD OF, SHOULD OF”

COULD HAVE,WOULD HAVE SHOULD HAVE,
this is a case of mishearing of phrase aloud as contractions: could’ve, would’ve, should’ve. When someone says “could’ve” out loud, it might sound more like they’re saying “could of.”

6. “Winning isn’t everything”

“Winning isn’t everything (then he pause). Men; its the only thing

These is the real quote, spoken by former UCLA Bruins football coach “Red” Sanders, was uttered to a group of students at a physical education work.

7. Jack of all trade master or none

A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.”

8. Great mind think alike

“Great minds think alike…and fools seldom differ.”

9.When one do closes another door opens

“When one door closes another door opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”

Keep that in mind the next time a door slams shut before you,

before the next one opens, you’ll have to turn around.

10.Curiosity kills the cat

“curiosity killed the cat…but satisfaction brought it back.”

In other words: being nosy might get you into trouble, but learning the truth is often worth the risk.

11. Be the change you want to see in the world

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him.”

Sadly, that doesn’t fit on on a bumper sticker as well.
