I suppose you are talking about this quote from the Sequences (A Priori):

James R. Newman said: "The fact that one apple added to one apple invariably gives two apples helps in the teaching of arithmetic, but has no bearing on the truth of the proposition that 1 + 1 = 2."

Do you have anything else you remember about the statement? Where you heard it, when you heard it etc.
