G. H. Hardy's quotes

I was looking for the "90% of everything that has been published is wrong" quote, which I think was written by Hardy. I could not find it with Google... but I remember having read it so vividly, perhaps from An Introduction to Number Theory... if you have it, would you mind posting a comment with it?

At any rate, I found this other quote that I like very much as well.

"It is not worth an intelligent man's time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that." --- Godfrey Harold Hardy

If my memory serves me right, this was said during or right before World War II began. So appropriate...
