Looking for the source of a quote

Again, I must turn to the human Google for this one. What is the source of this quote?

In most languages where inheritance is singular, it's a card you only get to play once, so you'd better play it wisely.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know the answer to your question, but I think this single card can be (re)played every single round of updates of your code. Not desirable perhaps, but then again, only dead code doesn't change.
