“On Monday mornings I am dedicated to the proposition that all men are created jerks”

American journalist and humorist H. Allen Smith (1907-1976) wrote in the book Let the Crabgrass Grow (1960):

“On Monday mornings I am dedicated to the proposition that all men are created jerks.”

The saying has been included in many collections of quotations about Mondays and has been printed on many images.
