Re: Sorry, but Thomas Jefferson didn't say that

I'm aware it's a misquote. The real quote is sort of similar but different.

What is the real quote? monticello.org says they didn't find anything like it in his writings.

The only similar quote they found was from a modern guy, W. W. Ziege, from 1945:

http://www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/nothing-can-stop-man-right-mental-attitude-quotation

If Thomas Jefferson had been told the quote, I think he would have given it a moment's thought and replied, "what if two people have conflicting goals, and both have the 'right mental attitude'?"
