Segundo a Wikiquote em Inglês a frase atribuída à Bismarck sobre Leis e Salsichas é erroneamente atribuída a ele. Parece muito mais confiável a fonte, uma vez que aqui foi retirada de forma indireta, pois a citação está em um livro que faz menção a ela. Lá, tem uma justificativa bem explicado. Aqui: Laws, like sausages, cease to inspire respect in proportion as we know how they are made. Though similar remarks are often attributed to Bismarck, this is the earliest known quote regarding laws and sausages, and is attributed to John Godfrey Saxe in The Daily Cleveland Herald (29 March 1869) and "Quote... Misquote" by Fred R. Shapiro in The New York Times (21 July 2008); according to Shapiro's research, such remarks only began to be attributed to Bismarck in the 1930s. Variants often attributed to Bismarck: If you like laws and sausages, you should never watch either one being made. Laws are like sausages — it is best not to see them being made. Laws are like sausages. It is better not to see them being made. Laws are like sausages. You should never see them made. Laws are like sausages. You should never watch them being made. Law and sausage are two things you do not want to see being made. No one should see how laws or sausages are made. To retain respect for sausages and laws, one must not watch them in the making. The making of laws like the making of sausages, is not a pretty sight. Je weniger die Leute darüber wissen, wie Würste und Gesetze gemacht werden, desto besser schlafen sie nachts. The less the people know about how sausages and laws are made, the better they sleep in the night. (No citation exists for where this German phrase or this translation originated).
