Quotes:
In the small town of Hannibal, Missouri, when I was a boy everybody was poor but didn't know it; and everybody was comfortable and did not know it. And there were grades of society - people of good family, people of unclassified family, people of no family. Everybody knew everybody and was affable to everybody.
-- Mark Twain
