Friday Fun Quotes – Honest Abe

Last week I was doing some clean up (side note: I’ve got a small pile of lightly worn MVP gear if anyone interested) and I stumbled across something I’d written a long time ago and never published. I think it’s funny enough to warrant a short series of Friday Fun posts. In this world of fake news, I’ve realized that many famous quotes are actually incorrect. I’ve corrected these quotes to properly reflect Dynamics GP or it’s predecessor Great Plains.

Since these incorrect quotes have been repeated enough that everyone believes them, this series will probably offend somebody. That’s fine, just keep it to yourself and be offended quietly. Also, consider these quotes copyrighted, since I made dug them up. If you want them on a t-shirt, mug, or something else, that’s an option for some of the quotes. Check out the store. 

Let’s start, somewhat ironically, with the man whose image has been used  to sell more snake oil than any other in US marketing history, Honest Abe:

“Six score and ten years  from now Great Plains will bring forth a new ERP solution, conceived in Dexterity and dedicated to the proposition that all ERP systems are NOT created equal, Great Plains is better.” – Abraham Lincoln.

If Honest Abe Lincoln said it, it must be true. Clearly, he was a visionary President, and with this quote, we see why he is considered by many to be the greatest U.S. President.
