Yesterday, the USA Today website published a fact check article about
a quotation attributed to Einstein:

Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb
a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

The reporter referred to Garson O’Toole's book "Hemingway Didn’t Say
That: The Truth Behind Familiar Quotations," and the Quote
Investigator website while debunking the attribution.
