Quote of the Week

The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter – ’tis the difference between the lightning-bug and the lightning. Mark Twain

I’m finding that a lot of the quotes I have are written down wrong.  I had this one written differently.  I must have copied it from the internet.  There are so many quotes online that are mis-attributed or wrong in some way.  I guess I should stick to quote books (although, at this point, I have so many written down that it’d be silly to ignore what I have).  I’ll just have to keep checking before I post them.
Goodreads, man.  Greater spreader of misquotes.
