Who Said It?

This week’s quote won’t be as hard as last week’s apparently was. Ok, that’s a lie. This week’s quote will be a challenge, but go ahead and guess.

Men are nearly always willing to believe what they wish.

I will give you a hint – on the screen, this person has been played by Sir Alec Guiness, Rex Harrison, Graham Chapman, Timothy Dalton (who also played James Bond), and Karl Urban (best known for playing Eomer in The Lord of the Rings).

Last week’s quote was, “I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.” Although only one person guessed, he got it right – it was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, known to the world as Mother Teresa.

Agnes was born in what is now the Republic of Macedonia in 1910 and left home at the age of 18. She joined the sisters of Loreto as a missionary and never saw her family again. She took holy orders in 1931 and chose the name Teresa in memory of Thérèse de Lisieux of France. She spent forty years serving the poor of Calcutta, India and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.

  1. Your answer is Julius Caesar. I’ll have to admit though, the only reason I know is because I’m a huge Karl Urban fan. Is that cheating? 🙂

  2. I won’t say your answer is correct or not until next week; but he is pretty cool.

    I don’t suppose it’s cheating if you just knew the answer.
