John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:4618
AUTHOR:Hester Lynch Thrale (1741–1821)
QUOTATION:The tree of deepest root is found
Least willing still to quit the ground:
’T was therefore said by ancient sages,
  That love of life increased with years
So much, that in our latter stages,
When pain grows sharp and sickness rages,
  The greatest love of life appears.
ATTRIBUTION:Three Warnings.
