I walk slowly

This persistent meme claims that Abraham Lincoln once said (or wrote):

“I walk slowly, but I never walk backward”

Number #1 resource for checking quotes: WikiQuote. It takes only few minutes to find out that this is a made-up quote.

Please check historical quotes before sharing them in social media. There are plenty of viral quotes that are made-up, misquoted, wrongly attributed etc.
