Apparently, this is the first and original version of the most cited

"All generalizations are wrong, including this one"

or

"All generalizations are false, including this one"



vaguely attributed to George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) or to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (August 29, 1809 – October 7, 1894)or even to Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910) better known as Mark Twain.
