comment Is it okay to quote a saying, even if i don't know who said it?
The context could suggest also to omit the whole "it has been said that" part and just write e.g. «"Many wealthy people are little more than janitors of their possessions", and so it was for John Smith, who in all his life took care of xyz without being able to use it...». I appreciate notes if the citation is indeed living part of the sentence and attribution is necessary.

comment Is Postscript still useful in the age of email?
@Neil Fein, I disagree. It can be used to deliver a punch line, that could even change the interpretation of what comes before (a taste matter). About climax, it would be ineffective since the "PS" comes after an "implicit" break, while I think a climax should be tied, and be a "continuum" altogether with the rest of the text
