Millions of students, especially in China, believe there is a list of mottos written on the wall of a library in Harvard University, one of the most prestigious universities in the US.

These mottos have allegedly inspired students to work hard.

However, when one student recently enquired about the list on the website of Harvard Library, the reply was disappointing.

The librarian said they have never found such writings on any wall in the library.

So the alleged inspiration for millions of students has been proved false.

But that hasn't stopped a list of the apocryphal aphorisms from appearing on Chinese internet sites. But look closely and you may find the English is not up to Harvard standards:
