I came across this quote yesterday and became interested in finding its origins. Regardless of the incredible connectivity and availability of information, data and research materials on the Internet, it is still very hard to find the original author of this quote. I haven’t been able to find the name of the person, or people who originally pointed out this truth. Every attempt of tracking it down ends up with a resource tying it to an episode of Star Wars - The Clone Wars, season one, episode sixteen, titled “The Hidden Enemy”. As it turns out, every episode of these animated series has a short moral titled at the start of the episode, but no author is credited alongside the quoted moral.

If anyone knows the original author or authors to whom this moral belongs to, please tell me.
