Yes, I saw it there, but the formatting on that page is so atrocious that one cannot actually be sure if it was meant to be presented as a quote or not. There are some other phrases that logically MUST be quotes, but though this MIGHT be, it is not definitely presented as such. This was why this was put into disputed section, as I could find no other source for such a translation. ~ Kalki··☳☶ 10:40, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Disputed and Misattributed[edit]

Misattributed is used for quotes that are wrongly attributed to a person, for example, quotes about Laozi that are misattributed to Confucius Confucius#Misattributed are misattributed quotes. The quotes here should be in the disputed section, not in the misattributed section. --Jedi3 (talk) 09:02, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

I have found the quote in the book. [1] It is on page 483-484 (Fol. 272). These are two different translations, but the content is clearly the same. --Jedi3 (talk) 09:41, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

The quote is from Beveridge, not Rizvi's version. You have found clearly indicates it you haven't read it. It is unfortunate you are quoting based on whatever SR Goel is saying. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 17:15, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
