There is no such Chinese "curse"

It's a cute quote, but completely false... just like the 'frog in a boiling pot of water' story. False.

""May you live in interesting times", often referred to as the Chinese curse, is the purported translation of an ancient Chinese proverb and curse. However, no Chinese source has ever been found."
