I knew there was something I liked about ole honest Abe...

There's a lot of things to like about Abraham Lincoln, but that quote isn't one of them. I don't believe he ever said it. A search of the online sites that contain his speeches and writings has not turned up anything resembling that quote.

This is the source of the photo and the quote...

Of course, they could be wrong.

I am the messenger, not the source.

Hopefully, I did not forward a false quote. I apologize, in advance, if I did.

It's impossible for Abraham Lincoln to have said that quote. Merriam-Webster's Ninth Collegiate dictionary says that the word "saboteur" was first used in 1921 and did not exist before that.
