"A rising tide raises all boats"

Posted by Nigel on July 29, 2005

"A rising tide raises all boats" - or sometimes "rasises all ships" - Does anyone know if someone is credited with coming up with this phrase? DId it come from a book or speech? The best I can find on Google is many references that say "as many people say..." or words to that effect.
