Thanks Roger, although half the time I can't remember where I put my glasses.

Best

Who said this?

"Just before my birth my mother had them remove her into the log part of the house. She wanted me to be born in a log house. She had read the life of Lincoln. So I got the log house end of it OK. All I need now is the other qualifications."

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

RE: Who Said This?
Was it another US president? (I think there were two, three others born in a log house.)

RE: Who Said This?
All good guesses.

It was not Earhart
Is/was an American
Not another US President

This person is/was a successful star of film and stage.

RE: Who Said This?
Yes, Eva.
This person had a very popular newspaper column and also ran for President of the United States.

Not D W Griffin, but our mystery person was in three movies directed by John Ford

Very good Rogerm
It was Will Rogers - a very unique person,

Here is a little more about him from wikipedia.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Rogers

Here are just a few Will Rogers quotes from the "Here Are Just a Few Will Rogers Quotes" web site
https://www.willrogers.com/quotes

Your prize for the correct answer is the enjoyment from listening to this song, The Ballad of Will Roger by Chris LeDoux
