    Albert Einstein Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde and Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin and Buddha all said that. At least the Internet says they did.

    Well, yeah, somebody at some point made it up.

    Made up or not, the rabbit still has to run.

    If you’re chasing rabbits, don’t make the hare’s mistake. Take nothing for granted, and stick to the mission until it’s accomplished. Don’t let yourself be diverted.

    In France we just say : One “Got it” is better than two “you’ll catch it”
    Un tiens vaut mieux que deux tu l’auras.

    We say “One bird in the hand is better than 2 in the bush”. I use that all the time. Young people just stare.

    Yeah… be VERY careful of using quotations and their attributions found on the internet… or in those long lists in your e-mail, of things George Carlin or the Dalai Lama never really said.

    Just because somebody pastes some words over a picture of Mark Twain, or Ghandi…. don’t believe that means he said them.

    Quotations sites like seem authoritative…. till you find the same words attributed to different people on different pages.

    Never having heard the quotation referenced in the strip, I, too, did a quick search…
    and just from images offered with those words on them (suitable for framing, of course)
    I found that it’s an old Chinese/Russian/Native American/Rumanian proverb…
    Or a quotation attributed to Leonard Nimoy….
    or Taylor Swift??

    In English-speaking countries we say “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.”

    But neither means quite the same thing as chasing two and getting neither.
