1 thought on “Impossible”

  1. Napoleon is a quote magnet — a bit like Einstein – so my default position is to assume a misattribution. However, and somewhat to my surprise, its turns out that – though he did not say this (he was speaking French after all) he did write “Ce n’est pas possible”, m’ecrivez-vous: cela n’est pas français”, which Google translates as: “It is not possible”, you write to me: this is not French.

    So not exactly what the quote has turned into but the sentiment is there, which is probably as much as you can expect from popular quotations.
