I'm at work, so I don't have much time to search, but a quick search using my usual tricks did not turn up anything along that line (though it sounds familiar). I'll check more later and check back.

Stern fate and time
Will have their victims; and the best die first,
Leaving the bad still strong, though past their prime,
To curse the hopeless world they ever curs'd
Vaunting vile deeds, and vainest of the worst.
~ EBENEZER ELLIOTT (1741-1849)
English "The Corn Law Rhymer" poet
From The Village Patriarch (bk. IV, pt. IV)
