Who said, “I aimed for the heart and by accident I hit the stomach instead”?

Upton Sinclair said, “I aimed for the heart and by accident I hit the stomach instead”.

He was discussing the national response to his 1906 novel The Jungle about the Chicago meatpacking industry.

The book was meant to galvanize workers to socialism but instead led to the passage of the first nationwide food and drug control laws.
