From Collected Tales, Sketches, Speeches, and Essays: 1852 - 1890, by Mark Twain
YES AND NO
"Yes, those among you who have not been in the penitentiary, if such there be, are better than your fathers and grandfathers were, but is that any sufficient reason for getting up annual dinners and celebrating you? No, by no means -- by no means."
From Plymouth Rock and the Pilgrims
