Which do you prefer? Why? How much do you care?

Update Looks like we've got a strong consensus, so I've changed that slogan and three other older slogans to "all right".

"All words have not a single meaning but a swarm of them, like bees around a hive. And like that swarm, changing its position ever-so-slightly with each wingbeat, the word's meanings change a little with each use upon the tongue or the page." -- Maureen O'Brien

I'm currently in a discussion in rec.arts.sf.written about whether it's important to say "painting the lily" (the actual Shakespeare quote) rather than the more common (in both senses) "gilding the lily".

Do you care whether people use the original quote? Have you ever been around people who did?
