I seem to have lost my access to the good interface for Newspaperarchive.
Is anyone with such access willing to tell me what are the earliest
respective occurrences in that database for each of the following two

You can't be too rich or too thin [probably best just to search for "too
rich or too thin"]

Today is the first day of the rest of your life [probably best just to
search for "first day of the rest of your life"]

Also, is anyone with access to Wall Street Journal Historical and/or
Christian Science Monitor Historical willing to search one or both
of these for earliest occurrences of the same quotes?
