Source/Notes:
According to "The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln: 1858-1860" (Rutgers University Press, 1953), "tradition has come to attribute to the Clinton speeches [September 1858 speech in Clinton, Illinois] one of Lincoln's most famous utterances..." - Although, according to "They Never Said It : A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, and Misleading Attributions" (Oxford University Press, May 18, 1989), there is no substantial evidence to support the attribution.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.  - Abraham Lincoln
