The great Mark Twain…

Quotable quotes… from Samuel Clemens…

Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel… he is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it… is a trait not known to the higher animals… man is the religious animal… he is the only religious animal… he is the only animal that has the true religion… several of them… he is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself… and cuts his throat if his theology isn’t straight… he has made a graveyard of the globe… in trying his honest best… to smooth his brother’s path to happiness and Heaven…

Ref: Mark Twain’s Book of Animals…
