“If I had had more time, I would have written to you more briefly.” – Cicero, in a letter to Julius Caesar

    I have always attributed this quotation to Blaise Pascal’s, «Je n’ai fait celle-ci plus longue parce que je n’ai pas eu le loisir de la faire plus courte.» but I have seen it attributed to Cicero, Twain, Hemingway, and Voltaire.
