I'm looking for a quote.?

It's something like: "I know you think you understand what you thought I said, but you fail to realize that what you heard was not what I meant." I think it used to be on a tee shirt.

    I know that you believe that you understand what you think I said. But, I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. - Unknown

    I used to have it on a book mark.

  • I seem to remember it going this way: " I know you think I said what you thought you

    heard me say, But what you thought you heard is not what you think you heard me say". In the event of error please note my pen name and this quote: "While success has many fathers, failure is often an orphan". Lastly, try HamptonRoads.com Feb 21, 2006. They have an article starting entitled with this version. Good Luck On Your Quest!

    Well if you're looking for a quote, then I encourage you to make your own quotes, what ever comes to your mind! sit down and meditate in a silence place and think of what you may want to write. Thinking estimulates our mind, so go ahead and start a new chllenege, that I'm sure you'll like it aot and writing will be another hobby you may like!
