Attributed. Earliest occurrence was found, without attribution, in: "Collier's: Incorporating Features of the American Magazine, Volume 53" (1914), p. 8. This quotation has also been attributed to Rochefoucauld in: "The Rotarian", Jun 1935, p. 38. And to Alexander Chase too, which doesn't make sense, considering he was born in 1926. There is a similar quotation attributed to Alexandre Dumas: "All generalizations are dangerous, even this one."
