Dear Garmt,

Another myth to be pinned out is the famous quotation attributed to Jules

"Tout ce qu'un homme est capable d'imaginer, d'autres hommes seront
capables de le réaliser."

How this "quotation" was forged is explained by Eric Weissenberg in "Jules
Verne - un univers fabuleux" (pp. 24-33).

Interestingly, in the book "Jules Verne et les sciences cent ans après" (p.
194) just published by Michel Clamen, the quotation is supposed to be
uttered by Marcel Bruckmann, a character of "Les 500 millions de la Bégum".
It is easy to check that this is not the case.
