I posted my reply at the same time you were posting yours, I wasn't attempting to question it. I had always heard it attributed to Mark Twain. And, back when Amazon first started, they actually sent Christmas presents to their customers each year. One year, the gift they sent me was an Amazon.com mousepad with that quote on it, and the attribution to Mark Twain.
