I think Teddy Roosevelt said this, but I need confirmation and context. Also, I might be wrong

If two men agree on everything, you may be sure that one of them is doing the thinking. ~Lyndon B. Johnson (1908 - 1973).

It wasn't given. LBJ was known for his brusque sayings.

I believe this came from the chewing gum magnate Wm. Wrigley, " When two people always agree, one of them is unnecessary."

It was L.B.J who said that and he went on to say “Ah! Don't say you agree with me. When people agree with me I always feel that I must be wrong”.

Reminds me of the idea and I don't know who said it. The worst that should happen among friends is "to agree to disagree."

Also, Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter said, "there are issues about which people of reasonable goodwill disagree."

Reminds me of the idea, and I do not know who said that. The worst that will happen between friends is "agreeing to disagree."

In addition, the Supreme Court of Justice Felix Frankfurter said, "there is doubt that reasonable people of good will disagree."

Whoever said that, said it correctly. If we are not listening to a conversation we will say yes for everything or we will respond. It happens always. Sometimes if doesn't know about the subject also we will agree with the other person’s views.

LBJ is the one commonly credited with this one, and he certainly is the one who popularized it; but Johnson himself claimed that he heard it from his mentor in Texas politics, Sam Rayburn.
