The photo included a caption that read “HAPPY BIRTHDAY Abraham Lincoln!!!” with a quote that said: “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
The Republican National Committee on Sunday posted the same image with the improperly attributed quote.
The website traced the quote back, not to Lincoln, but to a 1947 book advertisement about aging by Dr. Edward Stieglitz.
