looking for a quote from a book

The quote, "It was the best of times, it was the worse of times" comes from what E.A. Poe written book? I know this is from a Dickens book, but could it also be from Poe?

Dickens "A Tale of Two Cities" at the beginning("worst)). Though Poe divided good times from a lot of bad times I can't recall anything similar. Usually Poe was speaking of his personal past, rarely of the society.

Sorry, Beautz, but Poe does not use that phrase in anything he wrote. I searched a very complete set of his works through www.google.com.
