Recently a tweet from a politician contained the statement in the
subject line which has often been misattributed to Winston Churchill.
The Washington Post, New York Magazine, and some other media
organizations linked to the QI article about the statement:

I posted about this saying back in 2012 and 2017. Thanks again to
discussants and fellow researchers for help: Bonnie Taylor-Blake, Fred
Shapiro, Victor Steinbok, Dan Goncharoff, Stephen Goranson, and Peter
Reitan.
