The unquotable Mark Twain

(Via) Mark Twain. We quote him all the time. And a lot of other people, too. And quite often, these people we're quoting didn't say what we're crediting them with. How does this happen?

From That Mark Twain was something else, wasn’t he? He said so many memorable things, like “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes” and “Golf is a good walk spoiled.” What a writer, what a guy. Unfortunately—even though Twain is the great American humorist—he didn’t say either of those things... More.
