Whenever a phrase or sentence becomes part of the common language, there is a strong possibility that it will be quoted inaccurately.

Over the course of time, a letter gets shifted or a word is changed and forevermore the quotation becomes a cliche that nobody ever gets quite right.

Try to complete each proverbial cliche:

1.) " I only regret that I have but one life to ______ for my country." - Nathan Hale

2.) "Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no ______ ."

3.) "Music hath charms to soothe ______ ." - William Congreve
