: Who used the sentence 'a picture says more than a 1000 words'? I've got mixed results. Some say it is used by Minard to describe the army-crusade against Russia by Napoléon. Others suggest it is older and first used by Confucius. If it is used by Minard, how exactly was it stated.

Well, this is what Wikipedia thinks, for what it's worth:
