One of the most quoted men in history

No, it's not Quriltai. It's H.L. Mencken, who is quoted on Quriltai's blog.

"Well, I tell you, if I have been wrong in my agnosticism, when I die I'll walk up to God in a manly way and say, Sir, I made an honest mistake."

H. L. Mencken

Here's another good one, from the Wiki page. It's the epitaph from his tombstone:

"If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner, and wink your eye at some homely girl."
