Don't quote me on that.

As part of my FOOD FOR THOUGHT POST I quoted 'Yesterday was history, tomorrow is a mystery but today is a gift which is why it's called the present' and attributed it to Confucius. Several people commented on this, questioning if it was indeed Confucius who said it. WELL! Further research seems to suggest it wasn't, so who was it? There seem to be several alternatives - Musician, Babatunde Olatunji, Comedienne, Joan Rivers and Eleanor Roosevelt being the most common. Any further suggestions?

Hey, if there are no takers, I'd claim it as your own, Petty. Set up a permanent Google search for it and sue the pants off anybody who dares to use it without paying you royalties.

Don't think I'm going to become rich that way, especially after I got it from an animated film (Kung Fu Panda) - I suppose if anyone has the copyright to it, it will be them.
