Is that name attached to the quote about Greece a real person? When I google him, all that shows up are four pictures of some diplomatic-looking guy from the EU, but there is no text at all about him. With a name that absurd, you'd expect lots of results to pop up. Also, Nixon really shouldn't be one to talk.

No, his name is Dijsselbloem, not Dijsselbloemrumbic.

I noticed some mistakes in the names that you might want to correct:

- Erich Ludendorff (without 'von')

- George Turberville (instead of Turbeville)

- Jeroem Dijsselbloem (without 'rumbic')

Very interesting quiz.

There's a quote commonly attributed to Charles de Gaulle that goes: "Brazil is not a serious country."

The quote is actually from a diplomat, but summarizes well Brazilian politics.

Even if you gave hints for the names of the quoted people, the percentage of quiz takers who'd get them would remain really small I think. But a hint such as their initials might be useful? I was a bit surprised that Churchill didn't say any of those things.

I've also heard the first quote applied to Gambia. Look at the map of Senegal and you'll see why.
