I love Mark Twain's quotes. He seemed like he was a really wise and funny person. I actually have two favourite Mark Twain quotes. You wanna hear them? [I just asked out of courtesy, you have no choice in the matter XP]

'I never let schooling interfere with my education.'

...and

'Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.'

Heheh. XD
