I'll have to guess since I don't know: Socrates.

This reminds me of some other saying/aphorism.

Abraham Lincoln, I think. A friend of mine puts quotes at the end of her E-Mails, along with who said them of course, and that was one.

I know Abraham Lincoln said it, but I'm not sure if he was the first. It should really be "T'is" because it's short for "it is" Just like you'd write "t'other" not "tother" But people always write "tis" - I wonder why......

I think it should be 'tis, not t'is; it's the i before the t that's missing, so that's where you put the apostrophe (just like in it's and that's). Some people do write 'tis, but many people probably just can't be bothered or don't know. T'other is right because the h and e are missing after the t.

Ah, of course! Silly of me - I was trying to put the apostrophe in for the space. D'oh!  * smile *
