Henry Tuckerman
Source/Notes:
Often misattributed to Mark Twain; probably because it has been found in a notebook belonging to the wife of Mark Twain, Olivia Langdon Clemens. She attributes it to Henry Tuckerman, and while the attribution is correct, the quotation is just a paraphrase (See izquotes.com/quote/382485 for the original quotation).
