Portrait of Clemens, circa 1880
I never could keep a promise. I do not blame myself for this weakness,
because the fault must lie in my physical organization. It is likely that
such a very liberal amount of space was given to the organ which enables
me to make promises that the organ which should enable me to keep them
was crowded out. But I grieve not. I like no half-way things. I had rather
have one faculty nobly developed than two faculties of mere ordinary capacity.
