“You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” It’s a good quote. Most of us attribute that saying to Abraham Lincoln. Even historians.
However, this quote is not found in any of the writings of Abraham Lincoln. It is likewise not found in any of the newspaper articles around Abraham Lincoln’s time. This particular saying did not even come to be known until about 50 years after Abe was supposed to have said it.
