Mark Twain Quote

Mr. Roosevelt is the most formidable disaster that has befallen the country since the Civil War—but the vast mass of the nation loves him, is frantically fond of him, even idolizes him. This is the simple truth. It sounds like a libel upon the intelligence of the human race, but it isn't; there isn't any way to libel the intelligence of the human race.


p. 136, of President Theodore Roosevelt - Autobiography of Mark Twain, Vol. 3 (2015)
