It doesn't matter what essay he was writing I'm sure he didn't write about racial prejudice if he was surprised at what he found

Use a great quote that you wrote yourself and live by. The purpose of the college essay is for Admissions to see into your brain and learn how you think.

Why not go with Hitler? He was the founder of one too. Just put aside the 11 million people he had put to death.

5 has a point though. All of the evil leaders of the world got there with their words, as well as their hate and brutality. While we can all agree they were horrible people with horrible intentions, it is also agreeable that they were amazing speakers.

Use the quote, but attribute it to Foghorn Leghorn. With the advent of the Internet, the origin of lots of quotes have become muddier. I've looked up "golf is a good walk spoiled" and "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result," only to find massive debates about who actually said it. If your teacher challenges your crediting a cartoon chicken with the quote, refer him or her to this comment -- it's on the Internet

Whoever said the original quote is irrelevant. As long as you put it into a proper context, and don't come across as a racist, xenophobe you'll be fine!
