Quote of the day--from Mark Twain--Those Extraordinary Twins

Quote of the Day--Incomparable Mark Twain--from his story (don't know yet if it is long or short, copyright expired, on Guttenberg Project)--Those Extraordinary Twins, based on a set of real life twins --fiction.

"The new lodger, rather shoutingly dressed but looking superbly handsome, stepped with courtly carnage into the trim little breakfast-room and put out all his cordial arms at once, like one of those pocket-knives with a multiplicity of blades, and shook hands with the whole family simultaneously."

Just lovely, love it.
