Source of quotation?

What Mark likes to call a “bleg” for assistance: half a quotation is floating through my mind; I want to complete it but can’t seem to find whence it came. Help much appreciated:

“. . . and yet people starve every day for lack of what’s written there.”

    As the local (self-appointed) grammar cop, I’d like to thank you for proper usage of the tricky term “whence” rather than the pleonastic and redundant “from whence.” As a prescriptivist, I would say that the latter usage is just plain wrong. If they knew what they were saying, I suspect that even The Hoi Polloi would agree with me! 😉
