Marriage thoughts of yours? Or perhaps a car spotting this common bumper sticker happened to catch your attention while you were sitting there philosophising?
"Don't flatter yourself" is a common catchphrase, Bea. It's fantastically ironic that you've chosen to ascribe said phrase to Kid Rock.
That would be the political theorist, teacher & philosopher, Confucius. If not Gautama Buddha.
Mark 12:31 is perhaps among the most misattributed quotes of the 19th century. Similar to the injunction not to do to others as you wouldn't want them to do to you, the instruction to do right by your neighbour - now commonly known as The Golden Rule - doesn't in fact originate from the Sermon on the Mount or Christianity. Nor yet Jesus meek & mild. Rather it is adumbrated by the Babylonian rabbi, Hillel, in summery of the Torah (Leviticus 19:18 specifically), & it is to be found in The Analects of Confucious, too.
Keeping themes of misrepresentation I present The Opium of the People by Carl Marx. The opening of his Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right.
"Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless condition. It is the opium of the people"
If the most misrepresented quote of modern times isn't bestowed upon Nietzsche's Blond Beats, Shakespeare's Sonnet 18, or Einstein's "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind" it is potentially awarded here, as it goes on even more beautifully in closing to say;
"Criticism has plucked the imaginary flowers on the chain not in order that man shall continue to bear that chain without fantasy or consolation, but so that he shall throw off the chain & pluck the living flower."
This is in fact where Marx analogues opium not as a comforting medicine or crutch, but rather the illness necessary to sell itself a cure - smilier to a co-dependant ballet insisting infantilisation so to ensure the apparent gift of a narcissistic lead - & rendering atheists not as dogmatists, but rather those transcending the illusory bondage of superstition & supernaturalism.
