„Herodotus says, "Very few things happen at the right time, and the rest do not happen at all. The conscientious historian will correct these defects."“

—  Mark Twain American author and humorist 1835 - 1910
Acknowledgements Twain does not quote Herodotus here, he only sums up what he believes to have been Herodotus' approach to the writing of history. Nevertheless, this apocryphal statement is now often quoted as being the very words of Herodotus.

„Very few things happen at the right time, and the rest do not happen at all. The conscientious historian will correct these defects.“

—  Herodotus ancient Greek historian, often considered as the first historian -484 - -425 a.C.
This statement is not to be found in the works of Herodotus. It appears in the acknowledgements to Mark Twain's A Horse's Tale (1907) preceded by the words "Herodotus says", but Twain was simply summarizing what he took to be Herodotus' attitude to historiography.

„The true secret in being a hero lies in knowing the order of things. … Things must happen when it is time for them to happen.“

—  Peter S. Beagle American writer 1939
Context: The true secret in being a hero lies in knowing the order of things. … Things must happen when it is time for them to happen. Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophecies may not be left to rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a very long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.
