Best Answer

The author is uncertain, but some possibilities are:

The author is a Canadian man who wrote the quote on a greeting card for Carleton Cards in the mid 1970's . In return for his quote he was remunerated and signed away the copyright to Carleton Cards.

George Carlin USED it. Hilary Cooper USED it. They did not write it.

There is no certainty to who actually came up with it, but I've heard it was Stephanie Marcotte. I'm not sure if this is true, though.

In many links on the web, the quote is stated as, "In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away" and attributed to Shing Xiong (whomever that is).

George Carlin may have used the quote but he did not create it ...

The quote was originally on a Carleton greeting card .

I read somewhere that Mark Twain originated the quote

Edit: Carlton Cards / American Greetings denied that this was created by them. One would be justified in being suspicious of the "Carleton" Cards rumor, because the name is misspelled.

George Carlin said it. Hilary Cooper is the one that most often is quoted as using it though usually it shows up as "Anonymous"
