James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Bret Harte
 
  If, of all words of tongue and pen, / The saddest are, “It might have been,” / More sad are these we daily see: “It is, but hadn’t ought to be.”  1
  Never a tear bedims the eye / That time and patience will not dry; / Never a lip is curved in pain / That can’t be kissed into smiles again.  2
  You’re always sure to detect / A sham in the things folks most affect.  3
