Factually Wrong Quote Attribution

The meme doesn’t say Einstein said it, which apparently he didn’t, but it does strongly imply it by putting the quote next to his portrait. This gives the meme author plausible deniability, the ability to claim to have spoken the truth (Einstein can be used as an illustration of genius) while essentially lying.
