Mark Twain shared many interesting thoughts with us didn't he, Myrl? Ponder worthy quote as Michael Jacobs  would say...this seems to fit well in the current times. I love that photo! 

Hope you're having a great week and enjoying this magical season.

Good morning Myrl,
Mark Twain had quite a way with words, didn't he?  And, I love that you freely share your pictures.

Hello Myrl - I don't recall hearing/seeing this quote before but it is Twain-worthy as well as ponder-worthy, as Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD already commented.

Chris Ann Cleland - I just recently became acquainted with this Mark Twain quote.

Will Hamm - The photo was snapped along Highway 50, halfway across the state of Nevada.  It's one of the loneliest stretches of Highway 50 in the nation.  

Kathy Streib - You're absolutely correct. That's a Mark Twain ponder worthy quote!

Mark Twain sure said a mouthful there, Myrl. Then again, I also believe that there is much "danger" from people who don't know what they don't know, but act as if they do!

Either way it's ignorance that Mark Twain is warning us about here Myrl Jeffcoat and there are certainly plenty of ignorant people out there today.

Myrl I never thought of that, but now that I do, there is a lot of truth to that quote.
