who said this, i think it was an american president, i read it in his biography.. it might be abe lincoln but?

im still not sure.. it goes something like, not talking behind someones back, giving them justice and atleast having decency to let them defend for themselves… will someone give me that quote, either washington or lincoln said it, im sure it was someone historic.

Hard to say from your description, but Ben Franklin said, “I resolve to speak ill of no man whatever, not even in a matter of truth; but rather by some means excuse the faults I hear charged upon others, and upon proper occasions speak all the good I know of everybody.”

I hope that helps!
