To believe that such talk really ever came out of peoples mouths would be to believe that there was a time when time was of no value to a person who thought he had something to say; when it was the custom to spread a two-minute remark out to ten; when a mans mouth was a rolling-mill, and busied itself all day long in turning four-foot pigs of thought into thirty-foot bars of conversational railroad iron by attenuation; when subjects were seldom faithfully stuck to, but the talk wandered all around and arrived nowhere; when conversations consisted mainly of irrelevancies, with here and there a relevancy, a relevancy with an embarrassed look, as not being able to explain how it got there. From Twain, Mark. Fenimore Coopers Literary Offenses. Selected Shorter Writings of Mark Twain. Ed. Walter Blair. Boston: Houghton, 1962. 227-38. Print.
