Many very famous authors are responsible for speaking words of wisdom. However, they also delivered some true stinkers. Editors have purged the dumber ones but we have found some which we now reveal.

It was, at first, a comedy, and his name was Dr. Jerkel. - Robert Louis Stevenson
Who’s afraid of me? - Virginia Woolf
