Background For Mary Engelbreit Limb Magnet:
The quote on this magnet has oft been attributed to Mark Twain.
Mark Twain is the pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens. Further, he was born on November 30, 1835 in Florida, Missouri. He died April 21, 1910. Most notably, Twain is famous as an American humorist, journalist, lecturer, and novelist. Further, he is best known for his travel narratives and for his adventure stories of boyhood. Moreover, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885) are two of his greatest works.
However, according to Quote Investigator: There is no substantive evidence supporting the linkage to either Mark Twain or Will Rogers.
In fact,the earliest instance located by QI was printed in the show business periodical “Variety” in September 1950. The journalist Frank Scully coined the memorable phrase and included it in his column “Scully’s Scrapbook”:
“To people who urge you not to go out on a limb I have a new twist. I gave it to Ken Murray and before he can use it I’m giving it to my public. It’s this: Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?”
Within a week the powerful and widely-syndicated commentator Walter Winchell reprinted the saying in a section of his column called “Quotation Marksmanship”, and Winchell credited Scully.
