Mark Twain (1835-1910)
Note: This quote has been attributed to Mark Twain, but it's never been verified as actually originating from him. It may have originated from Charles Haddon Spurgeon who attributed it to an old proverb in a sermon delivered on Sunday morning, April 1, 1855.
Spurgeon was a celebrated English fundamentalist Baptist preacher and his words were: "A lie will go 'round the world while truth is pulling its boots on."
In addition, this quote has also been attributed to Winston Churchill.
