P. T. Barnum

Fecha de nacimiento: 5. Julio 1810
Fecha de muerte: 7. Abril 1891

Phineas Taylor Barnum fue un empresario, político y artista circense estadounidense, recordado por sus celebres engaños en el mundo del entretenimiento y por haber fundado el Barnum & Bailey Circus, el cual posteriormente se fusionó con el Ringling Brothers Circus para conformar el Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.[1]​ A pesar de que Barnum fue también un autor, editor, filántropo e inclusive llegó a ser político, según dijo su único objetivo era «tener los bolsillos llenos de dinero».[cita requerida]

«Soy un showman por vocación y el dinero no me convertirá en nada mejor»[2]​

.

En la actualidad, a Barnum se le atribuye erróneamente la frase «Cada minuto nace un idiota»[3]​

«El mejor arte es hacer felices a las personas»[4]​

Barnum Never Did Say "There's a Sucker Born Every Minute" http://www.historybuff.com/library/refbarnum.html R. J. Brown asserts that it actually originated with a banker named David Hannum, in reference to one of Barnum's hoaxes: a replica of the Cardiff Giant.
