I had originally seen this quote attributed to Mark Twain, but when I looked for where he said it, found a more complicated history. Quote Investigator has a deep dive on the topic. Maybe at some point quotes should enter the domain of public consciousness. Not to take away from Herbertson’s wonderful explanation, but how long does it take for an idea to just be all of the world’s and not just one person’s?
