: : : Where did the comment "Evil communications corrupt good manners" originate?

: : From St Paul's 1st Epistle to the Corinthians, Ch 15 v 33. (VSD)

: Pet peeve of mine: Whatever the Paul said to the Corinthians was in Greek. We have the writers of the King James Version to thank for that particular turn of English phrasing.

Ah, we must speak by the book, or equivocation will undo us! Always a pleasure to meet a fellow pedant. (VSD)
