“Ships that pass in the night” “No man is an island” “To err is human, to forgive, divine” Where do memorable lines and phrases come from and why are they still so prevalent today? We find them in book titles, newspaper headlines, speeches and our own conversations. The book Whose Words These Are recognizes, reconsiders, and remembers the origins of these popular sayings.
