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).

Quote of the day

Life is a waste of wearisome hours, Which seldom the rose of enjoyment adorns, And the heart that is soonest awake to the flowers, Is always the first to be touch'd by the thorns.
