Once I was writing a “Preface” for my friend’s college assignment book, I wanted to make it attractive so I thought of some quote related to prefaces of books. I consulted on an online forum and someone there said
Write anything you like, mark it Mark Twain’s name and no one would object.
You may say it was just his opinion but it’s not entirely true. People do have understanding that a quote by Mark Twain can’t be analyzed for its source. Why is that? Is it because Twain wrote about a large number of topics? Or is it because he was humorous and people have tendency to accept him easily?
