I agree with Ron Jenkins that it is OK to use famous quotations in the
context of teaching how to rewrite to avoid gender issues. But I was
annoyed that the *revised* statements were attributed to the original
authors - they clearly didn't say it that way. I'm afraid people might
quickly look at the book without understanding its purpose, and later
misquote because they saw the revised statement rather than the
original.
