Origin of a quote and Third Place Books

I really thought that we were going to be able to make it to Third Place Books tonight but as we drove home, I got more and more tired. Since Cindy was already tired, we collapsed when we got home at about 6.30p. Slept for about 3 hours. Bleh.

So, I'm curious as to the origin of a quote. Right now, I'm thinking of it as "Those who the gods would destroy, they first give allergies." but I originally heard it in the mid-80's as "Those who the gods would destroy, they first teach COBOL." Considering that it's origin is likely to be in Greek Tragedy, I suspect that's not the original quote. Does anyone know where that originally came from?
