Despite being credited to Marilyn Monroe, Margaret Thatcher, Hillary Clinton, Meryl Streep, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Anne Boleyn, among others, this famous adage was actually created by Pulitzer prize-winning scholar Laurel Thatcher Ulrich in an obscure scholarly essay entitled, “Vertuous Women Found: New England Ministerial Literature, 1668-1735.″

Country singer Roger Miller was most likely the first person to say this, though there’s a chance it was said by a totally random guy named also named Roger Miller. Bob Marley wasn’t quoted with the phrase until the mid-2000s, which seems pretty suspicious considering that he died in 1981. It has also been falsely attributed to Bob Dylan.

We couldn’t find any documented proof that Audrey Hepburn ever said this. It sounds suspiciously similar to the “I Believe In…” monologue from the movie Bull Durham.

Marilyn Monroe never said this in an interview or even in her autobiography.
