Spanish term or phrase: "no están todos los que son ni son todos los que están"
Cómo se dice de manera genérica está expresión en inglés?
Hay una entrada previa en kudoz pero haciendo referencia a una foto. No obstante en español se usa muchas veces genericamente.

Ejemplos:

Por otra parte, se recalca siempre que en las antologías, como en los manicomios, "no están todos los que son, ni son todos los que están". ...

Razón tienes, no estan todos los que son, ni son todos los que estan pero bueno, de los del enlace, me quedo con ” Le divorce “, por razones obvias, jejeje.

Y también la historia ha demostrado que no están todos los que son, ni son todos los que están.

  -> Ok, gracias.

neutral  Raúl Waldman: No se ve la inclusión de 'todos'. Dicho así parecería que 'no está ninguno de los que son, y no es ninguno de los que están'. O quizá estoy algo mareado.

I'm sure about the first part (although it's more normally used with "anyone" in a posotive way), the second part is more of an invention as I do not think there is really an equivalent in English!
