Scientific American magazine's April, 2003 issue (hmmm, April)
has the following on page 103, it's "Ask the Experts" page:

Q. Which month is the cruelest?
            -- I. Newton, Cambridge, England

T.S. Eliot, treasurer of the Dead Poets Society, replies:

April is the cruelest[sic] month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land,
mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.
November, also very bad.
