Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

Sadly, I prefer this particular current variant of this Winston Churchill quote over the original quote, which was in reference to a particular person:

Occasionally he stumbled over the truth but he always picked himself up and hurried on as if nothing had happened.

The bonus in the mangled version of the quote is the idea that we are all blundering into the truth occasionally, because sometimes we all need some motivation to go stumbling around.
